Yup, it's a dupe. Sorry.

Actually, not quite a dupe. Yes, they now have a horizontal scrollbar, but it's still a major pain to read long lines - if you flip between logs, the scrollbar gets reset to the left hand side. So this is a wishlist item for a word wrap option. I expect Gnome will reject it because Options Are Wrong, but I have built the source and might try and fix it myself.
