This is an expected behaviour (see gettext manual, 8.3.4):

«Right now, in PO mode, strings are single line or multi-line. A string
 goes multi-line if and only if it has _embedded_ newlines…»

If you need to just _wrap_ long single-line `msgstr` contents, use
`po-wrap` function described here:
http://www.gnu.org/software/trans-coord/manual/gnun/html_node/New-Translation.html.
It has to process the whole file, though.

I've already pointed out in `gnu.utils.bug` that `po-wrap` function is
worth including in po-mode (at least until normalization issues stated
in gettext manual are resolved).
