This is a display artifact. If there is one physical space left on the
screen line, but the character to be printed occupies more than one space,
bash needs to wrap before the end of the screen line, and it needs to
keep track of that.  It uses a space on the display, but that space doesn't
appear in the readline buffer and the readline movement commands skip over

I'll take a look at this.

This, too.
