[ESS] ess-execute-screen-options sets wrong width

When I run emacs in the terminal, ess-execute-screen-options sets the
width of the screen to one more than it should be. I think this has to
do with an extra column that is being used in the emacs buffer in
which R is running. This extra column appeared at some point when I
updated my emacs and/or ess. Anyway, this means that the width is
always set to the wrong value resulting in many print statements
having the text wrap in the R buffer.

Here is what my emacs R buffer looks like. Note the extra first column
and the "!" that is being displayed on the next to last line. I have
no idea what that is...
