wordwrap() is not able (by design) to properly work with unicode. 
Even with the latest PHP versions, though, there is no proper unicode support for wordwrap(), e.g. via MB functionality.

We ended up to "write" our own function to fix this bug, but it would be nice if a future version would provide this natively.
See the code linked below for concrete details.

Test script:
See the following PR code for

a) test cases to proof the defencency
b) a (PHP) fix to overcome it

Expected result:
I would expect to either have wordwrap() properly work with Unicode input (A pretty common scenario these days) or to have mb_wordwrap() available to handle this.
