Here is what I think now:  after a delete split, the cursor
should always end up on the next split after the one which
was deleted.  Any other behavior is counterintuitive and
unexpected.  The above minor disaster does not happen if
the cursor acts as it ought to.

Unless anyone can tell me why it shouldn't do that, (or that
it's already fixed in g2 -- I haven't built g2 yet...), I'll 
file a bug report so it gets on the to-do list.  Probably
I will also fix it but maybe not immediately.
