I used the 2-frame solution, and I am happy. I accept that it was a design
decision, but I do not understand the justification. If a character is truncated
, it is a simple matter to make your frame a little larger.

Anyway, another poster said that it is fixed in 1.3.4, but I probably won't
switch because it is the (very?) unstable version.
