 I'm pretty sure this is a browser limitation. The only thing we can do
 about wrapping in the bp-default code has to do with white-space: nowrap;
 but this requires that there be spaces in the content.

 A more programmatic solution (force a break after a certain number of
 characters) would be intrusive in non-alphabetic languages, and would
 anyway be unpredictable based on browser settings such as font zoom.

 The only possible consideration would be to change overflow settings so
 that the text streams off the screen. At least that would allow it to be
 read, instead of hiding it behind the sidebar. DJPaul, do you have an
 opinion on this?
