There was a discussion on this on emacs-devel recently (within the month 
of June 2009).  There may be some useful ideas there.  This was by Drew 
Adams and the subject was probably about the fringe.

Good question, thanks!  I can think of at least three
different ways to handle this, though: 
1.  Don't paint a block cursor, do something else. 
2.  Always scroll the line to the left as in truncate-lines
3.  Treat it the same way as you would actually inserting a
    space there (ie, left-scroll in truncate-lines mode,
    wrap otherwise).

I've always wanted to fix this.  Anybody know of reasons why not?
