Dave E Martin (xxiii(at)cyberdude(dot)com) reports a bug with a severity of 3
The lower the number the more severe it is.

Short Description
psql wraps lines at 256 characters

Long Description
the v7.0 psql wraps output lines at 256 characters.  The 6.5 version did not. I sometimes create huge xterms so I can get the output of a select all on one line per row,and keep the display nicely formatted, but now I just get a big void of emptyness on the right 3rd of my xterm, because psql is wrapping the output anyway.

Sample Code
make a big xterm, select * from some table with long rows.
