This is a known wordwrapping bug in Version 8.  it is also present in
version 7 but does not show itself quite as dramatically; however, it
is there if you push the example or yours in the right direction
(e.g., put the text on the right and the graphics on the left, resize
the window and sometimes the words will get clipped on the right).
The developers are aware of it and have examples in the WRI bugs
database.  It is in the queue to get fixed...
