Example with no-break spaces in fields in a cell

I have a paragraph style with no wordbreak. I.e. I want the text (<nbsp> - no-break space) "My<nbsp>verylongwordtext and his<nbsp>verylongtext" remain as it is. I uncheck all automatic word break options in the paragraph style options and type the text in a table cell. Everything works fine.
Then I put this text to a new field and paste this field in that table cell. I expect to see same result. But depending on the font height and cell width I see some words are splitted between lines without hyphens. For example, I get this:
"My<nbsp>verylongwordtext and his<nbsp>verylongt
instead of ths:
"My<nbsp>verylongwordtext and
If I replace no-break spaces with simple ones, works OK. If I use just plain text, not field, works OK.
I noticed, that it appeares not in first line.
