It happens because of the way the PRE tag is defined as being
non-wrapping. When there is a long line contained in PRE tags (check out
under the Examples heading), the width of the page expands to
accommodate the non-wrapped PRE, which causes all other paragraphs to
appear 'too wide'. In fact they aren't too wide -- they simply expand to
fill the now wider than normal page.
Some skins manage this by redefining the PRE and CODE tags to either
allow wrapping, or to incorporate scrollbars around PRE content. Check
out Blix (http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/Cookbook/Blix) for some examples.
