We have a custom value multi-value list field which can have quite a few activated items. When showing this field in the Issues view, the here comma-separated items are not wrapped which leads to very long lines and unnecessary horizontal scrolling. See attached image "redmine_multi_value_list_not_word_wrapping.png"

Expected behaviour: Multi-value list fields should be wrapped over multiple lines as seen in attached image "expected_redmine_multi_value_list_with_word_wrapping.png"

I did create this fix with a tiny CSS change in my custom theme:

tr.issue td.list {
    white-space: normal;

It seems that one cannot distinguish between single and multi-value fields out of the CSS classes that are set. It would be best if the rendering of multi-value list would add another class attribute.
