Exactly!  It's in the invisible fringe!  You cannot put any other character
there without the line being continued or truncated!

It is true that this was broken in emacs 21 -- basically making an extra
visible fringe next to the invisible fringe on the right.

But in emacs 22, the cursor on a "full-width" line is now shown IN the fringe.
So in emacs 22, the right fringe does not take up extra real-estate, just like
it was in emacs 20.

BTW, if you do debugging with gdb, the left fringe is very useful as well.

Also the indicate-buffer-boundaries variable makes good use of the fringes.
