word-wrapping will often cause a row to end with a character instead of a

When this happens, using backspace on say the second row will only delete
characters up untill the first column of the second row, i.e. the cursor will
*not* wrap to the end of the first row. Also, inserting characters on the
first row simply won't work anymore.

Is this known behaviour?
