column of the continued line, not the second, as you reported -- it
cannot be otherwise with that text and frame width 81 instead of 80, at
least if the font used has a fixed width (in my case the font is
-Adobe-Courier-Medium-R-Normal--12-120-75-75-M-70-ISO8859-1).  But that
is the precisely position in which there is no "empty" line (nor
continuation arrows) after applying the display property, regardless of
whether the character is a space or not.  Are you sure you didn't apply
the display property to the first column instead the second?  Or are you
using a variable width font?

I'm not sure now what I did. But I didn't use your "testing" line, your OP just said:

"2. Type a line of text that extends beyond (window-width) with auto-fill

I just typed in random characters.

But when I try now, I can't see any difference if the second character is a space or not. Sorry for the noise.
