Yeah, that's what was causing the prompt to get cut off. I assume you
overlooked it last time I sent, but here's the reproduction step:

        ./dmenu < /dev/null -p text

With the `w -= lpad * 2`, the prompt will get cut off. Also given the
variable name is _l_pad, I think it's probably intentional for the text
to bleed in to the right side.
