Debug packets bug & output non-wrapping behaviour

It's been a while since I did some scripting, but I wanted to change some things in existing plugins today and in the process I stumbled across a few weird behaviours that even persisted when I upgraded to the latest version. (Windows 7, 64-bit, Aero turned on, installed under \Programs\MUSHclient to avoid all the 'Program Files'-related messes and so forth.)

1. Turning on Debug Packets drives MUSHclients nuts. There's two 'problems':

1.a. _Two_ mdi windows show up with debug output, one showing sent AND received, one only showing sent data.

1.b. The backgrounds and such cease to update and it generally acts really wacky. I think part of the 'cause' is that my world window is maximized when I hit the command, and inbetween the messed up drawings it appears as it my world window still thinks it is maximized. Using the Tiling options in Window fixes the way it looks. However, at one point while testing I also crashed MUSHclient, had 5 sets of mdi-icons to the left of the File menu (and similar on the right side for minimize/restore/close).

As it is, I can't really trust Debug Packets anymore, and that's really annoying. Everything used to work fine back in the day, and I have no clue what changed.

And finally, the problem I was investigating...

2. When I turn wrapping off in Appearance->Output, it still seems to cut off the 'harsh' way at the column noted besides it. The interface layout suggests this number applies only when the checkbox is turned on, and even then I'd expect disabling the wrapping function to stop interfering with where my lines end alltogether.

Thankfully I can work around the issue by setting said number to the maximum of 500, but I would like to suggest that either the behaviour is changed, or that the interface and documentation are updated to clarify this issue. At first I thought it was the game I was playing forcing this wrapping onto me somehow. :)

Have you modified the client behaviour in some way? ... I forget exactly but there was some file that some people had that changed the Windows interaction.

I am not sure exactly what you mean, but no, I have not changed anything that I can remember. I used to modify everything I possibly could, but since Windows 7 I haven't really bothered. Same with scripting; I've only got 2 plugins running, and the problem also happens without them.

If you mean programs like Ultramon and such, I'm not using programs along those lines either.
