Correct, 'longest line' can be clamped between a Min and a Max value to
prevent 'silly' values. When the wrapwidth is set very small, editing
becomes awkward. When larger than the screen width, horizontal scrolling
has to be used to read all of the text.

In most cases it's therefore best to set Min to a workable value, eg 64
and to have Max match the screen width. For John's purpose a large Max
value should do the trick.

Er, 'StrongED$WrapWidth = Line' is also clamped. :-)
