The UNIX FE has this too. I guess we decided to live with it.
I use it all the time and just set the zoom to page width.
In any case I think this is a minor detail compared to the
horrible state that the stable-2.0 Windows FE was in. Can you
check that you no longer get overlapping lines in HEAD? Can you
look at moving this code to the STABLE-2.0 branch. I think we
should go with this code for both STABLE-2.0 and CVS HEAD and
discard what is currently in STABLE-2.0.
Lets build on this now and forget about the previous mess.
