This is as clear as a clear day. Or night. I would have reported a bug when I 
would have encountered something like that. And I was not complaining that the 
text cursor jumped from EOL (end of line) in column 47 to column 23 (when the 
line's so short, how can the text cursor stay far out in space?), what I miss 
is that it does not jump to column 61 where the other line actually ends but 
stayed in column 47.

OTOH, what I tried to show with my screen-shot looks exactly like something 
impossible: the text cursor beyond the end of the line of text. After the word 
"xdv2pdf" cannot be any white space because it was certainly removed before (I 
can't remember that replace-regexp was failing before) and because it was not 
shown in the other wider buffer. Was GNU Emacs a bit confused because the first 
part of the line it had to break was longer than the window is wide?



We are usually convinced more easily by reasons we have found ourselves than by 
those which have occurred to others.
