I need to add: the softwrap code still has several bugs, so maybe
not all bugs that your patch reveals are caused by your patch.
So when changing something, think twice whether the original
code is correct.

(The above bug, however, is in your patch.  Without it, using stty
cols 38 and no --linenum, the cursor moves correctly.)
