Fine, now I think I understand the problem better. I think that your
modification applies to inline formulas, but not to standalone
formulas: the latter would otherwise stretch to the right beyond the
page when the page is shrunk, which is probably not what the author
wanted anyway. Letting standalone formulas wrap alleviates the problem
somehow, although the ideal solution would be to let formulas just
wrap at designated points as you say.

Let me know if what I committed right now works for you.
