I'm not a dev so can't help you on that, but I can say there's a thread 
on it on the user group.  FWIW, someone said and others have verified 
that the problem only occurs if pan has to wrap the text.  If the text 
comes in pre-wrapped, pan handles it fine.  Maybe that'll help you with 
what's going on in the code.  If so and you get a fix you are sure of, I 
believe there's a bug filed that you could submit a patch on.

If you can't figure it out, at least there's a work-around.  Maybe with 
it the patch will be too much trouble to worry about.

You're talking about the text wrapper?  On post display, of course, you 
can toggle that with the menu item (and I believe the default accel is 
"w" for wrap, but I'm not sure as I long ago changed a bunch of accels 
using the accels.txt dump, and no longer am sure of /any/ of the 

In the compose window, I believe the wrap-text option is remembered based 
on how it was last set, but I'm not sure on that.  I usually have wrap-
text on, but do find it a problem myself once in awhile.  If it's just a 
few lines I'll fix it manually.  If it's many, I'll set unwrap, cancel 
the posting, then re-followup to get an unwrapped version.  So that much 
works here.  What I'm not sure of is whether it's retained over a pan 
restart, or whether it's a global or per-group preference, tho I'd 
imagine global.
