By "point is on it", I guess you mean point is at EOB, i.e. beyond the
last character position?  Because otherwise, I don't think I see what
you describe.

If this is about point at EOB, then this is the intended behavior: the
"line" where we position cursor in that case doesn't exist, so it
would be IMO incorrect to count it.  I'd prefer to leave the code
simple, without all kinds of subtleties whose sole purpose is to add
minor aesthetic sugar.

Nothing one cannot get used to, I think.

Thanks for the feedback.
