Yes, I looked at the code but decided it takes me too long time at the

Changes to redisplay are NEVER easy ...
I made a seemingly trivial change to fix one bug ... and two years
later someone finds a problem with it.

IMO, this is not the time to try to fix that.

Maybe not, but is not this more about positioning the cursor? The characters are displayed correctly. Moving to char >= 2 works correctly. But moving to char = 1 fails. Looks like it could be a corner case to me, ie something that perhaps could be fixed without general impact.

BTW I wonder if I did not complain about this two years ago too? But at that time I worked against a different solution since I wanted to get something that worked then. This time I think I need this change to get things working.
