bug #61353: [Wish] pasting a few words should trigger wrapping (when enabled)

Fixed in git, commit 50106266, by checking (after the paste) whether the current line is still the one that it was before the paste, and if so, then call wrap() on the line when --breaklonglines is active.

(A small issue is when redoing such a paste (after undoing it first), the status bar will say "Redid addition" instead of "Redid paste"...  I can't be bothered with fixing that for now.)

To see what I mean, run:

src/nano --auto --break --fill=68 --ignore +6,15 README

Then type: extra words
See how first "terminal" and then "the" is pushed to a new line, keeping the text width within 68 columns.

Now type: <Ctrl+Shift+Left> <Ctrl+Shift+Left> M-6 ^U ^U ^U
See how the current line just gets longer and longer without getting wrapped.

Wished behavior: when pasting just a few words (that is: anything that does not contain a newline), then hard-wrapping should occur (when --break is effect), just like when the words were typed manually or were produced by a string bind (for example: 'bind F12 "extra words" main').
