I erased the customization, and the problem persists.

Perhaps I have been confusing things by using the wrong terminology. I
don't care if the text `wraps', in the sense of putting a little arrow
on the side of the emacs window, and displaying the text that goes too
far on the next line. My problem is that `fill-column' seems to be
"filling" (if that is indeed the word I'm looking for) the wrong
column.
