What did you change?  I just went through all of dconf-editor listed 
items and did not recognize anything to change that would turn on 
settings/preferences in gedit let alone directly turn off word wrap.

And for Nautilus the same.  How do I switch to trees view from places?

Probably will need to take this to the gnome list.  But there is no 
help-about so that I can find out what version of gnome we are running 
here to ask about.
