But this is because you told move_it_to to move to the end of the
screen line, by specifying it.last_visible_x - 1 as the X coordinate.
What happens if you tell it to stop at the buffer position of the
newline instead?

move_it_to always stops when it delivers characters from the buffer,
so if there are display or overlay strings, or glyphs come from a
display table, it will go on until those are exhausted, and it is back
at the next character from buffer text.  So you should try stopping it
before it gets to the newline, which is displayed using the
display-table entry.
