Fixed in commit [a603056379].

This is a Viper quirk. Back in the day, Vimpulse redefined Viper's
"cw" code quite forcefully to get rid of the classical "change state",
affecting whitespace behavior. This code is long gone, and in newer
versions, the change state is toggleable.

I haven't changed `viper-forward-word' directly, but I have modified
Vimpulse's wrapper for it in Operator-Pending mode. "w" is one of
those mutable motions whose behavior depends on the operator calling
it. Its "change clause" is now only invoked if point is not at
