  Unfortunately, this also means that new code paths might have been
introduced, and consequently that new bugs might have crept in.

  Since we are very near to the planned total-mega-master freeze, I'd
like to ask the bravest among Evolution users to update their snapshots
(the ones that will be available in a few hours), and start playing with
the new composer, reporting their impressions to the list and bugs to
the Bugzilla.  The sooner we get bug reports about the composer, the
better the quality of the composer that we'll ship with 1.0 will be.

  BTW, It works great so far for me -- except that it's much, much
faster.  :-)  It's definitely worth a try.

Ettore, try creating a very long line that does contain white space but
that line wraps ~40 times.  Now, set the message format type to HTML.
First, try scrolling.  On my machine I notice significant lag in
rendering the text and the scrolling pauses sometimes.  Also, if I place
my cursor near the beginning of this long wrapped line and start typing,
I notice a very long delay between rendering of each character.
I have a 32MB GeForce 256 DDR in an 800MHz Athlon machine with 128MB
of RAM, so this is not a slow machine.
