The 6 characters fill 7 columns with the blob that indicates a character
that can't be displayed.  This causes anomalies in cursor motion
within the line.

If the line is almost 80 characters, it overflows
the line on the terminal, causing vertical positioning anomalies too.

These consequences typically occur when text sent to the terminal
occupies more columns than Emacs expects it to occupy.

Yes, they go away.
