This is all as expected: setting any of the fringes to zero requires
displaying a continuation glyph in the text area, and since Emacs
supports bidirectional display, we need to usurp one character cell
from the other edge of the window as well, to make the geometry of L2R
and R2L screen lines symmetrical.

If this causes trouble in ansi-term, then ansi-term should be fixed to
take this into consideration.  (Presumably, ansi-term uses wrong
interfaces to get at the width of the text area.)

This is not Martin's problem, this is a problem in ansi-term (AFAIU).
