this current behavior is correct. wordwrap() will only cut a word when it is, by itself, longer than the line length. whenever it can cut the line between words, it does.

it is easier to see what is going on using:

$text="A very long woooooooooooord.";
echo wordwrap($text, 8, "|", 1);

which prints:

A very|long|wooooooo|ooooord.

oops, meant to flag as bogus, since this is not a bug.
