Bug in GtkTextView Applications

This problem occurres everytime you repeat the characters ([, ], (, ),
{, }, ;, :, ,, ., !, ?, ¡, ¿, /, ' ' (space) and — (em dash)) enough
times to cause the evoking of a line break, the GtkTextView does not
wrap them.

Although this functionality is beneficial in sane environments where the above
characters are not expected to be repeated more than three times, applications
that use GtkTextView in an environment where wrapping is preferred
such as in (Pidgin, IRC clients, etc.) they have their windows either
stretched—occasionally beyond the size of the screen—or a horizontal
scrollbar appears, which then requires the user to scroll to read
text, this bug happens to many people, and we want to fix it that's
why we need you're help.
