I'm sorry for the delay in replying to this thread, but I've been away
since Christmas. 

All wide-column is supposed to do, by default, is switch the cursor
colour when the cursor is based 80 columns. In addition it calls some
functions when the buffer is changed, to fake buffer local cursor

I haven't tried 21.3 yet. Is this a CVS version rather than pretest?
Or did I miss an announcement in the flurry of christmas spam?
