Yep, just saw it mentioned in the thread. I'm surprised this exists and
is actually recommended - a lot of cool OpenBSD stuff tends to stay

Dug into man and source. The horizontal scrolling behavior seems tied
with the "emacs" line edit mode. If disabled (set +o emacs), it's gone,
together with any line editing capability (e.g. C-a prints '^A').

It would be cool to have a separate flag for that. I'd have to dust off
my C skills...
