This is an issue unique to browsers on certain *nix platforms (looks like specific versions of the underlying linked libraries).

The browser, under these conditions doesn't respect the explicit styling but uses the cols attribute to render the width.

Since this is out of our control and only effects a small number of users (and is visual only - it doesn't effect functionality), we will not be fixing it.
