PuTTY interprets ESC [?7l in a weirdly wrong way -- instead of disabling
autowrap (which is already a half-documented feature that's implemented
differently on the VT100, VT101, and VT102, likely by accident), it makes
autowrap work in a different, incorrect way.  Editors trip over that since
they can't be afraid to use column 80.
