Bug Description

Evolution doesn't want to wrap a paragraph at a space if the space is followed
by a '/' character, e.g. "foo bar /blahblahblahblah..." will wrap between "foo"
and "bar", rather than after "bar".

Evolution also doesn't respect non-breaking space characters in its word wrap
algorithm, e.g. "blah blah blah foo~bar", where ~ is actually a non-breaking
space, will wrap between "foo" and "bar" instead of before "foo".

Both examples are assuming the "blah" blocks are long enough to witness the
problem. If the description alone isn't sufficient, I'll take screenshots.

As for the gedit bug the "/" part is not a bug. I've opened a bug upstream about
the unbreakable spaces: http://bugzilla.ximian.com/show_bug.cgi?id=73852
