string-rectangle mode-line prompt is erasable

Subject: string-rectangle mode-line prompt is erasable

This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
not to your local site managers!
Please write in English, because the Emacs maintainers do not have
translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list,
and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.

In GNU Emacs 21.1.2 (i386--freebsd, X toolkit, Xaw3d scroll bars)
 of 2001-12-09 on pyrl.eye
configured using `configure  --prefix=/usr/local i386--freebsd'
Important settings:
  value of $LC_ALL: nil
  value of $LC_COLLATE: nil
  value of $LC_CTYPE: nil
  value of $LC_MESSAGES: nil
  value of $LC_MONETARY: nil
  value of $LC_NUMERIC: nil
  value of $LC_TIME: nil
  value of $LANG: nil
  locale-coding-system: nil
  default-enable-multibyte-characters: t

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

- set mark in a buffer
- move down (and/or over)
- C-x r t
- press the backspace key several times

The result is the prompt "String Rectangle: " is erased!

I expected that a beep would occur and that the prompt would not be
erased.

(Note that C-a correctly does not jump to the left of the prompt but to
the right.)
