The odd formatting that you observe is a side effect of setting the option
ColumnWidths->{0.4, 0.6}, which is inherited from the style setting for a
DefinitionBox in the HelpBrowser.nb style sheet.

I am unsure if this is a bug in the math edit formatting or just a bad 
choice of values for this cell style.  I have forwarded this example to 
our Quality Assurance department so that they may investigate this.

If you find behavior that you believe to be errant, you are welcome to 
send concise examples to Wolfram Research Technical Support 
<support at>.  This will ensure that our developers are aware of 
bugs that users find.  Moreover, if it is a known problem with a simple 
workaround, they may be able to direct you to a frequently asked question 
page for more information.
