This behavior is expected. The word wrap algorithm treats lines that
are too long to wrap using the ordinary line-wrapping rules, and since
overflow-newline-into-fringe is disabled in Visual Line mode, the extra
empty line is used to show the non-overflowed newline character.
After the release, I might look into letting word wrap handle
overflow-newline-into-fringe behavior. I suspect, however, that this
may lead to confusing results in some circumstances.
