bug#5117: 23.1.50; Weird display when wrap-prefix contains tabs

From: Matthew Dempsky
Subject: bug#5117: 23.1.50; Weird display when wrap-prefix contains tabs
Date: Thu, 3 Dec 2009 14:06:26 -0800

Here's the contents of `foo.el':

    (require 'cl)
    (with-output-to-temp-buffer "bonk"
      (with-current-buffer standard-output
        (loop for i from 1 to 100 do
              (insert (make-string (+ (random 5) 3) ?x) " "))
        (setq wrap-prefix "\t")))

If I run `Emacs -Q foo.el' and then `M-x eval-buffer', it creates a new
buffer "demo", but instead of each continuation line being consistently
indented by 8 spaces, they're each randomly indented between 1 and 8

The issue appears to be due to the expansion of tabs being related to
the actual current column rather than the visual current column.
Literal tabs within a wrapped paragraph exhibit similar behavior.

This additionally sometimes confuses `visual-line-mode's line motion
