Is this a bug or is it just me?

You can actually have both. Sort of :) What I do in such situations 
is to have a checkbox "wrap lines" above the field. When checked, it 
sets the dontwrap property off. When unchecked, it sets it on.

on mouseUp
   set the dontwrap of fld "xx" to not the hilited of me
end mouseUp

I also usually toggle the display of horizontal scrollbar, so when 
the wrap is off, I can scroll to the right.

   set the vscrollbar of fld "xx" to the hilited of me
