Thanks guys, for taking a look at this with me.

I'm having a hard time trying to do my original bug reproduction
starting from the `emacs -Q` command, because GNU ELPA keeps timing
out or something. `M-x package-refresh-contents` reports "Failed to
download ‘gnu’ archive." Not sure if my network is acting screwy or if
the ELPA server is down. `M-x package-list` actually says
adaptive-wrap 0.7 is already installed(??) even though it's not
included with the Emacs packages installed from Fedora -- yet the
`adaptive-wrap-prefix-mode` command is unavailable. So at the moment,
I can't test your suggestion of setting the whitespace-line face
background, at least not starting from a pristine environment.

...However, the default colors for the `whitespace-line` face is sort
of a purple foreground on dark gray background, while in the
screenshots from my previous test (second image at
<https://imgur.com/a/znbU0s3>), the wrap prefix is black on white --
same as the buffer default colors for text that hasn't yet gotten any
syntax or other highlighting.

And in my actual configuration (the third image in the Imgur album),
it's the same behavior, except there the default colors are white on
very dark gray. I actually have Whitespace Mode configured *not* to do
highlighting for long lines anyway. In Customize, under the Whitespace
Style options, both of the "(Face) Lines" checkboxes are unchecked.

So if it *is* just a clash in my face configurations, I don't think
the `whitespace-line` face is the one winning out here. In fact,
*none* of my Whitespace faces have a white foreground color.

I thought for a moment to try `M-x describe-text-properties` or
something similar but I can't move the point onto the wrap prefix, so
I can't figure out how to get properties on the prefix itself.

It's certainly possible I've done something wrong in my configuration,
but I can't think of what it would be. You can see my current init.el
file here <https://gitlab.com/snippets/1859536>. I've tried to include
plenty of comments to make it easy to skim.
