Lines really long in comment fields

Right now it's a problem when you enter the bug.  It *should* be a problem
when the bug is displayed.  The intended fix is to get rid of the hard-wrap
attributes on the text boxes and either do display-time wrapping when the
comments are displayed to the user, or hard-wrap the text server-side after
it's uploaded instead of depending on the browser to do it like we do
currently.  My personal vote is to do it display time, as it makes things
more flexible and also automatically fixes all the old, currently-broken
