The following one-liner fixes this.  Whether to install this now is up
to you; after all, nhexl-mode is not part of Emacs, and quite a corner
case at that.  OTOH, the current code is obviously wrong.

Note that there are still display problems after this change: except
when you are at BOB, the first screen line below the liner is almost
always empty (buffer contents is displayed starting from the second
line).  Also, there seem to be a miscalculation of the line width when
some character is displayed using a display table, e.g. where there
are ^L characters in README.  All these were there before the patch,
and I didn't investigate further what causes them.
