Scintilla is hard-coded to wrap on style changes if possible.
`src/Editor.cxx:2402` is responsible for this. I was able to comment out
that "else if" statement to get the "wrap on whitespace" effect you were
hoping for.

Neil might accept a patch to the wrap mode. For example, calling
SCI_SETWRAPMODE with a new WRAP_WORD_WHITESPACE constant would tell
Scintilla to not check for a style change, but rely on that last
conditional to break on spaces or tabs.
