Chat Box Text Wrap

In the main chat box, if you type normally the text wraps as you would expect.  If you try to go back and insert something in an active line, the text pushed to the right hits the edge of the window and then.... the cursor jumps to the next line as you type.

Example.  Line length is 55 characters.  Type 50 characters BLUE, then go back and add add a word with 10 more RED in the middle of that line.  You get 25-5-25 on the first line, then the last 5 of your new word on the next line.

As of now, the insert/wrap is fixed, but still the "talk" button obscures the last 2-3 characters of the text typed on the first line.  This prompts me to stop and regroup, forgetting what the last letter I typed was, so I have to backspace, reorient, then look away and type blind.

Anyway, moving the "talk" button to the right out of the window (or shrink the chat line).  Or, you could maybe make the chat box 3 lines thick and move the talk button to the lower right corner, as long as there is room above it for lines 1 & 2.  It's line 3 that won't reach the end anyway.  This latter solution would let you view lines 1 & 2 as you typed line 3 etc.

{Sorry, didn't know if you wanted this as new bug or comment/expansion on resolved bug.}
