as I read the proposed patch, it used the strlen() of the current editing
buffer to decide how many cells to fill.  That could be longer than the width
of the screen, for instance, if the buffer was multibyte characters.  I thought
it would be simpler to use LYclrtoeol() to erase the remainder of the line.
