Yeah, it is really horrible when BZ wraps program output that is
included in the comment. I've opened bugs against bugzilla in the
past to have this forced wrapping removed, but they were declined.

Adjacent to the first comment in each bug is a link "Unwrap comments"
which we're apparently supposed to use when viewing individual bugs
to remove the manual line breaks BZ adds :-( No way to make this the
default for your user AFAIK
