The attached patch avoids the issue, by temporarily disabling
wrapping when trying completions.  The wrapping will take place
a little later, when the user accepts a completion and continues
to type more characters.  Only when the user types <Enter> after
the completion does the filling/justifying of the line not take
place.  If we can't come up with a fully correct solution, I
think this overshooting the right margin in the case of <Enter>
will be tolerable.
