Aaah, so that's the reason for some of the half-sentences I produced
recently!  Seems I'm so sure about the behavior of C-k that I just
remove the newline and jump elsewhere, without realizing that too much
is deleted.

In other words, this has caused me data loss (text loss) and will now
slow down my typing speed until a fix is in.
