The underlying problem has now been fixed. The code to calculate the
width of line numbers would treat system font and bitmap fonts the same.

This was fine in previous versions where both were 8 pixels wide but now
that bitmap fonts can have a different width the code needs to handle
this differently.

The code had been updated to cater for a variable bitmap width, however
system font had not been made into a separate case. As a result it was
using a rubbish width leading to a line number width that was much too
large. Larger than the window width so the wrap width actually became
negative, oops.

Anyway, it's now fixed. Thanks for reporting it.
