I've only been using this site for a day and notice that comments are not wrapped correctly between words but seem to wrap on line length whether mid-word or not. I even tried manually breaking lines in one of my comments but after submission it seemed that manual line breaks had been removed and wrapping was weird again.

Why is this? I haven't seen this sort of thing for years and thought that correct line wrapping was a problem that had been solved everywhere.

UPDATE: after posting this I notice it isn't just comments but post titles and bodies too that are affected.

I have seen this lately, for a week or so I guess. Perhaps a consequence of some buggy system update. If this were always so, I believe I would have spotted it sooner. Can't say that for sure, though.

I thought it had to do with my system, but then I discovered that it was on all platforms, regardless of browser in use. I find it mildly annoying.

Reported it now.

This bug appeared some days ago when a patch was applied to fix the erratic notification issue. I think @Mike Kaganski is tackling the problem, at least has notified the authors of the site engine.

Great, thought it might have been some issue with my system/browser. Good to know others see it and that it's being looked at.
