I hope you didn't misinterpret my meaning there: I was talking about the text
wrapping only, not the glyph (i.e. glyph goes offscreen but the text that
would be drawn offscreen wraps). I don't think that the glyph should wrap
(that'd look pretty wierd for most images I think, especially in VM where it's
doing large images in strips) but I'd expect the text to do so (as it now

Right, and that seems to be what your first patch fixed to be "correct" (as I
said I saw no behavioral change with that last patch you sent so that had the
same "correct" behavior).
So Kyle, do you have a special reason for including that space in the extent?
If not, would you mind removing it from the extent for the next version of VM?
