If you have access to the CSS for your DTD's customization you can also try adding the following to the selector for the CALS entry element:

wrap-option: emergency;

This will cause XMetaL Author to attempt to arbitrarily break within two characters that would otherwise not allow a line break (normally XMetaL Author uses the Unicode line breaking rules for the most part).

Keep in mind that this will probably confuse your authors because they may assume the break is occuring because there is a white-space at that position (when there is not).
