Addendum: After thinking about it some more, if the goal is just to
avoid crashing and not to keep it usable, I do have a solution, which
I've added locally.

And as for which character to display when a two-column character is
pushed to the next row, I like '>' better, especially since the
statusbar prompt uses '<' already on overly long lines, so I'm using
that locally as well.

And maybe softwrapping behavior with regard to on whitespace could be
controlled by an rcfile option, much like how the justifytrim option
controls justify behavior?
