Yes. I think you have unresolvable problem if your font's letters are
10cm wide, you have 80 columns and 807cm wide screen - whatever you do
you either waste 7cm or see the 81th column partially cut.

Well, till now I used border of 0px (e.g. no border, this is on the
screenshot) which created some visual problems for overlapping windows,
but I ignored them (because I rarely have overlapping windows).

Now I set up black border of 1px and xsetroot -solid black. That way I
get the old visual appearing of the terminal and can distinguish the
borders of overlapping windows.
