This is a feature.  See this entry in NEWS:

    ** The C-n and C-p line-motion commands now move by screen lines,
    taking continued lines and variable-width characters into account.
    Setting `line-move-visual' to nil reverts this to the previous
    behavior (i.e., motion by logical lines based on buffer contents
    alone).

I'm closing this bug report.
