Thanks for the report. We will look into this before the final push of BZ.
Comment 2 David Lawrence 2004-12-10 22:04:56 EST
Changed the all text areas to be 80 columns with a wrap=hard to properly insert
new lines after each line on a word break. Certain things will not wrap properly
this way for example URL's and long lines of text with out any spaces. This is
not that common though. I will open a new report as a RFE to add Text::Wrap
support in the backend for all textarea submissions to automatically wrap for you.

Has this been pushed out yet? I have just gone and created a mess in bug #144201
after using the Guided Bug Entry form...
