visually off by one character. For example, consider the following line,
with the cursor at BOL.

the cursor, but the visual mark will NOT include the closing paren, and will
only include the first 3 characters, "(123". Now, it is important to note
that if I then try to yank the selection, the yanked region is exactly what
it should be, i.e. it will include the closing paren. As such, this defect
for me is purely cosmetic, but a little annoying. Is this a known issue?
Is it possible there is some misconfiguration on my part?
In the Vim manual it is stated that ) is as an 'exclusive' motion, and % is
an 'inclusive' motion. Does this have anything to do with this? Shouldn't
both be giving different results?
