It's impossible, that i use something linked to tools because i deleted /tools
i missed the /etc/profile.d/readline.sh bt now i added it. I have still the same problem. Now i did see that only the first auto-linebrak doesn't work. So if i  type something very long longer then two lines i get one auto-break for from the second line to the third line. Very strange...
