The convention used here is to leave all entries that share a common
ChangeLog description blank, except for the last one; see the example in
the "** Commit messages" entry of the CONTRIBUTE file.  So instead of the
above, like this (with a slightly reworded description):

* lisp/textmodes/bib-mode.el (mark-bib):
* lisp/simple.el (mark-whole-buffer, yank): Remove unnecessary argument
`(point)' from calls to `push-mark'.

Do you have `fill-column' set somewhere?
