I think this bug already shows the problems: Apelete wrote long
sentences that are not wrapped to a given column (usually 80 or 72).
This will lead to the need of *horizontal* scrolling, really annoying.

I do think this is something the the MUA / EDITOR used should no and
*NOT* reportbug (there are lines that *needs* to be long, like errors
/ stack straces & co).

Is this the problem? Apelete can you confirm? Carl, do you think the
same as of me?
