Oops, you are correct. I've committed a change that should work now.

I don't know what is causing the display artifact. The fact that it
doesn't happen on Linux or Win32 terminals leads me to think its a Mac OSX
issue only. (You've pointed out in the past that is an
oddball.) What happens if you run Textadept in iTerm or another OSX
terminal application?
