If we want to avoid crossing the border, we need to have css word-wrap: break-word;
But it may not be desirable for many languages to break the word at arbitrary position.

German translation for "Datenbankeinstellungen" is now (1.22 from git master) "Einstellungen zur Datenbank" but the issue can still happen when I change it to a long string without linebreaks locally.

Not sure if something useful could be done here. Allowing text overflow still seems to be better than just cutting it off.

We could increase the width of the box

We should check if the issue is still there
