I think you should press enter and enter line breaks. Don't you have
any processes that use svn:log? If you do not add hard returns on
your messages you are forcing every piece of software you use to have
logic to reformat the log messages.

I use TortoiseSVN as well and I do not recall it having a feature like
the one you describe. I think you might be thinking of the viewing of
log messages and we have the same feature.

We do not do anything in the commit dialog to wrap your lines because
it interferes with creating a properly formatted log message which is
important to a lot of users. That is also why us and TortoiseSVN have
a setting to add a hint line to the dialog to give you an idea where
you insert your breaks.
