Can you provide a screenshot?
This is usually caused by really long lines with no word-breaking characters
(such as spaces, "/", etc.). Unfortunately, this is a browser issue, and
there's really nothing we can do about it. IE appears to be the only browser
on the market with this level of brokenness in their word wrapping.
In your case, if it does wrap but is always past the shadow, that's
definitely very odd and I'd love to see what that looks like. It's possible
it's something we can fix, but I don't know.
It'd be interesting if you could reproduce this with some diff on
