Have you tried enabling horizontal scrolling?

Didn't know about that option, it seems to solve the problem at hand
indeed, thanks! Is there any particular reason why it isn't enabled for
terminals of height 1 by default?

Maybe it should be, but it's easy enough for users and programmers to do
it. It's a user-settable option; right now it's only enabled by default
on terminals that don't advertise the capability move up and down between
lines, for which wrapping is impossible.
