Word wrap for tooltip not working as intended

Word wrap is no longer working as intended in tooltips. 


For longer strings, a line gets wrapped twice, first at the correct location and then at location that's far too early to be of any use. This results in a staggered texts as in the screen shot below.


This is issues is present in both PBI Desktop and the PBI Service. It affects both build-in visualizations and custom visualizations.

This is not an issue of new-line characters, as reported in issue


The original text (used in a custom tool tip and entered manually in the Query Editor) is posted below. Please note that the line breaks doesn't correspond to the line breaks in my screen shot. The "|"-character is replaced in the visualization by a few linebreaks, but the screen shot is from a built-in visualization.
