ncurses-5.4-20050903.patch.gz solves the backspace part of the problem,
allthough deleting characters on the end of say the second row won't bring
words from the beginning of the third row back to the second as soon as there
is enough space, but that may be a bit too much for the existing logic in the
code, I haven't checked.
Let me clarify the insert part of the problem a bit more. It's not the first
row per se, it's all rows that end with a character of a word that 'normally'
would have been wrapped. These lines don't accept any (regular) characters
anywhere (they do accept backspace now).
