  I find this behaviour rather annoying too, and we can still imagine
possible solutions. Mine would be displaying a different cursor on the last
line character, say some bar cursor placed at the right end of the
character, or some cursor half wide compared to the usual cursor, still
placed on the last character of the line instead of on the next line...
Wouldn't that be [more] feasible?
