Sylpheed relies on the Pango's line break feature. Sylpheed asks to
Pango for possible line-breaking positions. As far as I tested, it
seems that Pango considers in front of euro sign (and other symbols) as
line-breakable position. To solve this, some characters might be
handled as special cases. But it can also possible that my usage of
Pango is wrong :)
