An observation (was Wrapping long pathnames in narrow fields)

Ah, I see. Pathnames are always one word. So the dontWrap in Rev does not 
help. Odd, though....

It does in HC. Wrapping is not word dependent. HC just uses the field width 
as a wrapping limit. This seems like a weakness in Rev, which will will not 
wrap except at word boundaries within the field width, as best it can. You can 
have some long words within a narrow field NOT wrap, while the rest of the text 

I assumed HC-like behavior. Dangerous...
