Thanks for reporting this! I don't have bzr right at the moment, but a opt_in_label.set_line_wrap(True) in sc/ui/gtk3/widgets/ at line ~112 should fix this.

  [ Michael Vogt ]
  * softwarecenter/ui/gtk3/views/
    - only set vadj/hadj if we have the objects for it (LP: #941384)
  * lp:~mvo/software-center/get-installed-apps-instead-of-pkgs:
    - refactor to move the recommender UUID code into the back end,
      add a mock test for the submit_profile call to the server
  * lp:~mvo/software-center/region-blacklist:
    - add support for filtering out apps that are blacklisted for certain
      regions such that they will not appear in any searches anymore
  * lp:~mvo/software-center/installed-view-speedup:
    - remove an unused notebook in the installed view to speed up
      opening software center with an already installed package
  * softwarecenter/ui/gtk3/widgets/
    - fix per-app recommendations show/hide logic
  * lp:~mvo/software-center/spinner-fixes:
    - consolidate various instances of the spinner notebook and instead
      use a single SpinnerNotebook class everywhere
  * lp:~mvo/software-center/recommender-fixes:
    - tiny fixes to make the recommendations-for-you actually work
      with the server
  * lp:~mvo/software-center/expunge-cache:
    - add a helper that keeps the cache clean from cached 301/404 etc
      responses, it also offers cleanup by mtime but that is currently
      not used (only tested)
  * lp:~mvo/software-center/lobby-recommends-fixes:
    - add test for recommender-opt-in behavior

  [ Kiwinote ]
  * softwarecenter/db/
    - index 'Keywords' entries from desktop files in addition to the
      already supported 'X-AppInstall-Keywords' entries
  * softwarecenter/ui/gtk3/widgets/
    - increase delay between the 'load-finished' signal from webkit and us
      actually trying to get a pixbuf of the surface - this means that the
      initial banner is actually rendered properly rather than plain white
  * softwarecenter/ui/gtk3/widgets/
    refactor _show_opt_in_view:
    - use normal sized text rather than big text
    - use saner padding values
    - resolve unescaped markup issues
    - line wrap text so we don't get horizontal scrollbar (LP: #933497)

  [ Gary Lasker ]
  * lp:~gary-lasker/software-center/get-installed-apps-instead-of-pkgs-tweaks:
    - unit test and other small needed fixes, further simplification of
      the recommender UUID code
  * lp:~gary-lasker/software-center/lobby-recommends-fixes:
    - fix recommender opt-in
