No, my return key works fine.  $WORK obligates me to use a MUA which supports i18n well, by which I don't mean UTF-8 and ISO-Latin-1, but various UTF-16 encodings like Big5/GBK and ISO-2022-JP.  Unfortunately, Mail.app no longer implements the format=flowed MIME Content-type.

Feel free to file your own bug reports with Apple and reference:

  rdar://8866049 Mail.app 4.x no longer generates format="flowed" content
  rdar://8866164 Mail.app: support external $EDITOR for message composition

Alternatively, one could leap ahead and use a 21st-century MUA which wraps text.

Yes, that would have been an improvement over your original comment.
