Wrapped short text is harder to read, so yes.

The goal is not to fit as many buttons as possible onto the toolbar. I
personally find it quite nice to have larger hitareas (icons + text). If you
need more space, disable the text, put the text below the icon, make the icon
smaller... I wouldn't recommend that though, having more than 7 buttons
usually defeats the purpose of a toolbar -- quick scanning, finding and access
to most-used options.
