So git-bisect(1) blames

    commit e537b780f7aea8df01ddca1976f8c128d9c1fb55
    Date:   Fri Aug 29 08:50:51 2014 -0500

        fmt_scan() no longer subtracts 1 from the width.  This has the effect
        of no longer counting the trailing newline in the output of scan(1),
        inc(1), and the other programs that rely on it.

But I suspect it's wrong and that just pushes the 137 to trigger the
error off by one.  :-)  I'll have another go testing a run of widths
each time and saying it's bad if any fail.

Cheers, Ralph.
