bug#16856: 24.3.50; Cursor leaves garbage in fringe (and a request: widt

From: Anders Lindgren
Subject: bug#16856: 24.3.50; Cursor leaves garbage in fringe (and a request: width of fringes + scroll bar should be full characters)

I can repeat this using a slightly different recipe:

    emacs -Q
    (setq truncate-partial-width-windows nil)
    C-x 3
    C-x o
    C-u 37 x
       Here, the cursor which is in text area blinks, while the part in the fringe doesn't.

       Wait until the the cursor stop blinking
        Now, the right fringe contains half a cursor.

I believe this behaviour is no longer present in Emacs 25.

I don't think there's anything else in this bug report that needs
addressed, and as such, I'll close it in a couple of weeks if nobody
