I DID try clicking on the arrow and nothing happened.  Since I only had 
one gedit opened, I tried to figure it out.  Now that you say this is 
what it does, I realized where I MAY be having troubles.  I am in 
terminal, sued, and running gedit to edit the yum.conf.d files!  So I 
opened terminal regular and ran gedit & and sure enough it works and I 
can set preferences no problem for ME and turn off word wrap.

But I cannot do it for root's use of gedit to edit config files.  :(
