Is there a reason Wine does not have its own X11 compatible code the
same way that Mozilla or other Free Software applications do?

Basically the buffer wraps around, so if i manually try and resize the
window right, the right of the copy repeats the left etc
C:\windows>dir /p /w
Volume in drive D is Home
Volume Serial Number is 1234-5678
Directory of D:\c\windows\

See this text in unwrapped mode of your email client, ths "V" of the two
"Volumes" appears at the end of the line in an extra collumn.
This is worse if the window is bigger. This bug also surface under
other circumstances that I have not been able to repeat yet.
