Many thanks! Very interesting reading; the information I was looking for is on page D-13.
While the document makes the architectural intent reasonably clear, it also says:
It should be noted that existing products vary widely in their
handling of the end-of-line condition in regards to resetting the
Last Column Flag.
For that reason, I would still be very grateful if someone with an actual VT100 or later would run the previously mentioned test program at https://raw.githubusercontent.com/mattiase/wraptest/master/wraptest.c. It should build on any Posix system and should be easy to adapt in any case. I'll summarise any contributions.
