Undoing twice for the "Non-visible characters" viewer
is not intuitive. Instead, you should set a toggle box
that will toggle the view of it. Don't make actual
changes to the buffer.

Similar to the other bug that I filed.

    We'll need to add a feature both for mere display of
    non-visible features and for display plus actual buffer
    changes, since part of the purpose of the buffer was to
    provide a mechanism to store these changes not only visibly
    or in print, but also directly on the file. If anything,
    this intention should at least be made clearer.

    The workaround for now was simply not to include this plugin by default. The source code is still provided, so users can still include it by downloading the src pkg, updating the plugins flag in the configure script to include NonPrintingChars, and make all.
