I see; I misread "curpos" as "cursor" when I glanced over it the first
time. However, it still looks wrong to me, so I tested it to verify -- I
believe the problem is that the characters aren't guaranteed to have a
width of 8 or even be constant for every character, so if you type (or
paste) something like "Blah blah Բարի գալուստ Վիքիպեդիա Blah Blah", the
cursor position and the number of asterisks is not properly
