I think this is the previous issue you are talking about Terry.

The correct algorithm is a little more complex than just using east_asian_widths. Ideally we would like to use the wcwidth function ( which implements all the logic to somewhat properly figure out widths.

Given Terry's comments from above and the previous issues I'm starting to think the fix for this issue might not be worth the added complexity.
