Try this:

    (set-display-table-slot standard-display-table 0 ?\ )

In general, it might be a good idea to keep that the
dollar sign. It'll drive you crazy when compilation
says there is an error at some line and you can't find
it as it is far right of the screen. Better to use
auto-fill when typing human text and when programming,
simply keep the lines short.

But for special situations it won't hurt trying. Just
remove the line from any init file if you don't like
it, of course.
