Won't compile against latest wx source. Undefined symbol wxPG_PROP_NO_ESCAPE. Fix included. #544

Symbol wxPG_PROP_NO_ESCAPE is no longer used by wx and is no longer defined. (See wx commit wxWidgets/wxWidgets@37f9c6f where wxLongStringProperty and other classes were refactored).

Thus current code compilation fails with:

[1/3] Compiling C++ object 'wxformbuilder@exe/src_rad_inspector_objinspect.cpp.o'.

   result->ChangeFlag( wxPG_PROP_NO_ESCAPE, true );
ninja: build stopped: subcommand failed.

The solution is simple: Remove the offending line 254 of src/rad/inspector/objinspect.cpp since it is no longer needed. For clarity: This is the offending line that should be removed as it is no longer necessary:

		result->ChangeFlag( wxPG_PROP_NO_ESCAPE, true );

Thanks for the notice, i already discovered this by myself some time ago, but wxWidgets also broke something else that actually made it impossible to enter newlines into wxLongStringProperties. This got fixed only recently, but i still need to investigate if the removal of this flag has any bad effects on wxWidgets 3.0.4 which is currently used for (some) of the CI builds.
