      Hmm, I guess that the patch should be included.
      if leadbyte erase by single-width character,
      double-width character will be broken.
      Then, the trailbyte and leadbyte of next character might become DBCS.

      For example, putting ' ' on '[][]'.

      [][] : clear_next_cell will be TRUE
      ][] : set ptr = " ", but mbyte_cells become 2.
      [] : thus, set ptr = " " again.
      ] : repeat ....
      : repeat ....
