I don't see why.  Redisplay only considers the visible portion of the

row->pixel_width doesn't count text glyphs, it counts all of the
glyphs in a glyph row, including the glyphs produced by the display
engine for its own purposes.  E.g., it always includes the space glyph
produced at the end of a line, which is needed for displaying the
cursor.  In the R2L case the width includes the stretch glyph
prepended on the left.

The latter.  row->pixel_width is computed in compute_line_metrics,
after the stretch glyph (and any other glyphs needed for line display)
were already inserted.  compute_line_metrics doesn't care about what
glyphs are there, it counts them all.
