That approach is best if you cannot reasonably avoid the potential
trouble in the first place.  This isn't the case here.

Why is it a problem to outdent this string?  Or do something like

                            (error "Attempt to select \
inactive minibuffer window")))

or this:

                            (error "Attempt to select "
                                   "inactive minibuffer window")))

The problem with long lines exists only in the printed version of the
manual, and only in the address@hidden' environment, because TeX does not
fill text in this environment as it normally would and produces
exactly one line of output for every input line.

In addition, menus produce no output at all in the printed manual, so
whatever we do there cannot possibly cause line overflow.
