I isolated the cause for this, and will have a fix in 9.8l

This doesn't solve the problem in every conditions. First disable backspacelimit. Open a line (with the command "o") when the cursor is on a line as long as the screen width. Then press backspace one time and enter in command mode.

Sorry if I wasn't clear; I meant typing the characters while in insert mode
without using macros. After typing the line and returning to command mode,
the cursor will return to the end of the line but the screen line created
to make space for the cursor will not disappear.

This bug happens in vile 9.8j in xterm and WinVile in Vista

I'm not able to reproduce the bug

It seems that I should be able to, using this initialization:

set linewrap
map K 080iX^[

(^[ is escape).  But that leaves my cursor at the end of the line.
Changing the repeat to 81 does leave it at the beginning of the
next line, but having added a line longer than the screen width.
This is in xterm, of course.

When linewrap is set, after inserting a line equal in length to the screen width and then (after the cursor is at the start of the new screen line) returning to command mode, the screen is one line off the real buffer contents. The screen is updated only after a scroll command.



(Note: upload size limit is set to 16384 kB, after insertion of the required escape characters.)
