Internally, they would move to the next paragraph, which is the next line in the underlying file. That may well be the correct behavior. This is not any different from `truncate-lines' being nil, with the occasional line wrapped.

Things like C-n can be changed to actually move to the next line.
For Aquamacs I have written code that moves to the next (visible) line and places the cursor as close (horizontally) as possible. This is also relevant when using variable-width fonts. I'd be more than happy to contribute that.

One way to fix this might be to selectively bind search-spaces-regexp
during font-lock, if longlines mode is on.

Well, sure. You can patch up things here and there to deal with longlines-mode. Of course this would work for this specific bug.
