I don't know about Eclipse, but in Visual Studio, once you break an operation onto multiple lines, formatting will not make any changes to the number of lines, nor will it decide if a line is too long and break it up.
I use Visual Studio all the time, and I have never had a problem with the formatting. Then again, I started programming in VS, so I guess my formatting preferences are based on what is available in VS.
