     When I now go
forward (right) by one char, the cursor in deed steps forward by two

    rectangle which is killed now, is two characters wide and not one!
    That's a bug -- in my opinion.

That is not a bug.  ^@ takes up two columns, and so the recntangle
is two columns wide.

It's only *presented* as a "wide" character ...

Perhaps the presence of ^@ in a directory listing is a bug.

Yes, there must be some reason for that -- and it only happens in GNU Emacsen, not in xterm or Terminal.
