Nope. And I'm not sure if this really is fixable.
When you enter text and the line exceeds the length set by
tsvn:logwidthmarker, the line is split by inserting a newline char.
Now, if you enter at the beginning of a long line, a newline is inserted
right before the last word. If you enter more text, the same happens
with the second last word. But now of those two words are both on their
own line, because they *both* have a newline inserted.

If we would try and remove those newlines again (which we could of
course), then we would also do that for newlines the user explicitly
inserted him/herself. And that's not good.
