I use the emacs kill/yank rectangle function a lot.  Often I only need to
copy something.  kill+undo will of course do that; but involves quite some

this command my kill-rectangle command does not work as required (deletes a
little text to the right of the end instead of the rectangle).  I have bound
that one as follows:

As stated above I am not experienced with Lisp nor the internal workings of
Emacs - what did I miss?  Using "<Ctrl>+x r k" still works as it used to!
