You're mixing two things: displaying received messages and producing a
message for sending. This is confusing.

This line won't be wrapped because of no white spaces

and this will. So, maybe we could improve our wrapping code, so it will
remember last line length (after wrapping) and will use the length for
wrapping of current line. This at list should work for above use-case.
Of course this will not work for any ASCII art.

This task is not simple because in plain text you cannot define which
line should and which shouldn't be wrapped. Did you try to set
line_length config option to some big value e.g. 200?
