[Python-mode] coding in emacs 23

After upgrading to emac23, I noticed one big
difference in editing python code ... or, well
editing anything.

   1  One-really-long-line-of-text-and-newline
   2  -doesn't-appear-until-full-stop-HERE.
   3  Second-line-of-code

It used to be if my cursor was positioned on
(0,1) and I pressed ^N, the cursor would jump
down to the second line of code (0,3).  Now it
goes to (0,2) which is still considered (0,50).

I think I preferred the older behavior for
coding -- especially when I'm ThinkingInPython.
Now I grab a line of code only to look up and
realize I've only grabbed the first portion of
the python statement.

This also messes up the way I used to do some
on-the-fly macros.  Anyone else affected by this
