The composer used in Thunderbird 2 will not wrap lines until they are
very long. This means that when one types in text, the lines become
longer than the composer window (a scroll bar appears below) and the
window scrolls right until Thunderbird finally cuts the line. I can
force line breaks before the window start scrolling right by hitting
enter, of course, but then the format=flowed that Thunderbird, like many
other clients these days, wants to use, will get screwed up.
The composer acting this way is a well-known design flaw in Thunderbird
2. I do not know what this bug's status is on Thunderbird 3.
