 I have the same problem in [http://hackage.haskell.org/packages/archive
 /usb-safe/0.9/doc/html/System-USB-Safe.html the documentation of my usb-
 safe library].

 Replying to [comment:1 MtnViewMark]:
 > The drawer does sprout a horizontal scroll bar (look at the bottom) so
 you can scroll to see all the definitions.

 Unfortunately I'm unable to scroll the scrollbar to the far left in both
 Chromium and Firefox.

 > I'm open to better ideas on how to handle long types in the synopsis
 drawer. The only other idea I can think of is letting them wrap, then use
 hanging indent to keep them clear.

 Or align the synopsis to the left and let long lines flow out the window
 at the right. You can then use the scrollbar to scroll to the right to
 bring them into view.
