So where am I going wrong? I suspect that the problem is when my cursor
position moves me to position "11" because each line has 11 characters.
So we can get stuck between character 10 and 11 and it is treated the
same, hence we are off one character as a result. I also suspect that
this may repeat.
I tried using setdebug, but of course you cannot see the character
position when using it ... so that didn't help me. I suspect I could do
the math manually and see where it is off as well.
I think it can be fixed with a little effort ... hmmm

then screen updating turns back on. That's the part that seems strange
