All others might not write char by char to their offsets, like Okteta does, 
but render whole strings (e.g. Konsole does, where Qt (or whoever) fall back 
to a proportional font for me and left me wondering for a while why the cursor 
(offset computed differently obviously) was in such a distance to the last 
character, until I found out.
Should take a look at the offset calculation of Konsole perhaps, seems not to 
fail here.
Thanks for the hint, always blamed the font before :P

Yes, it is, but thanks. TODO for a long time, in mind at least :)
