I have to notice that for me (editing in) wrapped mode never really
works properly. Thtat's one of reason (and KANJI) and start to fix.
It seems that instead of removing bugs I'm just moving them :(

Of course I'm not comiting changes which does not work for me, that ones
are in separete folders

Till now I mostly fixed things which does not work or at least not good.
I always try changes if they works properly but it seems that not
enougth - there are lot of things to check and in different modes.
I'll try harder.
