Basic Question: Text Field wrapping

I have a very simple question:

Is there something odd with wrapping in text fields in the OS X version?

I've created a brand new stack and placed one text field on the card. 
The Properties palette confirms that the dontWrap property is false. 
If I type into the field, or insert text into the field via the 
message box or via a script, the text does not wrap.

To further test this, I created a checkbox that toggles the dontWrap 
property.  Inspecting the field's properties shows that the button is 
in fact toggling the dontWrap property, but the text never wraps.

I hope the answer to this is simple, and that I've just missed something.
