Hi!

Joe simply leaves the last column of a row out. This is
_VERY_ annoying due to files that use 80 characters per
line - I have to scroll for one character than.
I think this should be fixed because column 80 is
simply empty on every row, but I should be usable
without problems.
I tested it on VT420 (hardware, not emulated), XTerm
and Eterm, the bug appears on every terminal.
If I resize the xterm, joe resizes, too, but still
leaves the last column out. For example I resize to
81x24, then column 81 is not used too.
I hope I expressed it well enough so that every
understands what I mean ;).
If not, I'll make a screenshot and attach it here.

    This was a bit missunderstandable. It's not that column 80
    and 81 both are empty then, no, only column 81 is empty then.

    I did this (a long time ago) so that I wouldn't have to care
    if the terminal autowrapped, magic wrapped or didn't wrap
    the cursor at the 80th column. I'll make this an option at
    some point.
