This is really the problem: the invisible multibyte characters in the
prompt are not correctly counted in all cases and throw off the cursor
positioning calculations. That problem is worse when the prompt
completely changes, like it does when cleaning up from an incremental
search, since we don't have enough state about the prompt that's
visible (in this case, the reverse-i-search prompt). The fix is the
same as the previous problem, though there are a couple of other things
to fix up.
