It is not a  problem, but a feature. Suppose you  would autowrap text,
how could someone send a text which should not be wrapped? Like a code
fragment, poem, table, whatever. You would  have to make special cases
for that.  While currently,  you only need  to hit  the return  key in
stead of the space key. Same number of keystrokes.
