      From :help i_CTRL-\_CTRL-O

      """
      The CTRL-O command sometimes has a side effect: If the cursor was beyond
      the end of the line, it will be put on the last character in the line.
      In mappings it's often better to use <Esc> (first put an "x" in the
      text, <Esc> will then always put the cursor on it). Or use CTRL-\
      CTRL-O, but then beware of the cursor possibly being beyond the end of
      the line.
