In Gmail, Reader etc., text is wrapped to about half the screen width. This is extremely annoying! Text-size is normal, and I can't find any global settings that would govern such a thing. Can anyone help me out? I'm using a Nexus S, CM7. Screenshot of text wrapping problem

As a temporary work-around, flipping the phone to landscape and then back to portrait restores the wrapping to the whole width of the screen. It comes back if the app is killed off by Android and needs to be re-started. – Chahk Apr 21 '11 at 15:13
@Chahk Thanks, that works, is this a CM problem then? – fredley Apr 21 '11 at 15:15
Not sure, I haven't run other custom ROMs since Donut :) – Chahk Apr 21 '11 at 15:19
@Chahk Not even stock? – fredley Apr 21 '11 at 15:20
@fredley Nope. The one time I did run stock was when I booted up my N1 for the first time. It was then promptly unlocked and cyanogenized ;) My co-worker just bought a G2x which runs stock Froyo (2.2), and his Gmail app functions normally. Could be something in Gingerbread (2.3). – Chahk Apr 21 '11 at 15:25

This was an issue with CM7 builds up until 7.0.2 after which it was fixed.
