The trick here is to use ylabel(1 "Example" 2 "for" 3  `" "text"  "labels" "'),  i.e. surround the  "text" "labels" with - `" "' -

A want the labels for these axis to run over two lines. Instead of
numbers you can use text (E.g. ylabel(1 "Example" 2 "for" 3 "text
labels")). However, I do not know a way to run "text labels" over two
lines.  Do you?

Thank you!
Andreas
