Yes, that's true (and well known).

Correct.  But only for lines that end before EOB.  The line that ends
_at_ EOB and all the subsequent lines don't have this stretch glyph.
The changes I did introduce such stretch glyphs for _all_ lines in the
window than don't already have them.

No, the return character has no face, and in fact it has no glyphs.
The original code would reset the face to the (un-remapped) default
face when it hits the line at EOB, and would not draw past EOB at all,
instead relying on the display-specific code that clears the rest of
the window with the default color.  Since now there are stretch glyphs
there, we do draw in those areas, and we draw in the precise face that
remapping specifies.

Nothing, I just reused the machinery that was invented for R2L lines.

If you show me the code, I will see if it's a bug or something else.
