--- Bug report:

I've got static word wrap on, at column 62.  When my typing gets to the
end of a line, the cursor often jumps to a position a few characters
along in the next line.

For example, with * marking the position of my cursor, when I type "i",
the following is the before and after scenario.

Obeyesekere (impact in Sri Lanka), Montgomery (medical pract*),
Taylor, and

Obeyesekere (impact in Sri Lanka), Montgomery (medical
practi),* Taylor, and

So the cursor has jumped two chars forward, and my typing is in a mess.

I can't routinely repeat the error, and I'm not sure about all the
features of it.  It seems to vary according to the exact layout of the
text.  But the above example was repeatable.
