No, that's not it.  The problem appears on one page at:

For some reason, which I've never figured out, the text immediately
following the Extensions heading appears in a dashed box.
Apparently, line breaks no longer occur automatically.  So now the
right margin is extended to accommodate this text.

[grumble... grumble... grumble...]

So here's the deal:

1) I don't want this dashed box in the first place.  Is there a way
to tell mediawiki not to do this here?

2) How do I get line breaks back?
