Subject: Math based on columns() seems correct but actual columns in use (using a monospace font) can be wrong

If you run the attached script in a terminal that does utf8 correctly and has a good Monospaced Unicode font like Menlo you'll note that the 🤔line is too far right. It is as if it actually takes up 2 columns but it is reported as 1 column. May not matter but it is a 5 digit code point and the others are 4. Thanks! ``` | I am ascii.......... | | ‼ what!............. | | ⁇ curious........... | | ✏️ take note......... | | 🤔 hmmm.............. | $VAR1 = { "\x{1f914} hmmm" => 6, "\x{203c} what!" => 7, 'I am ascii' => 10, "\x{2047} curious" => 9, "\x{270f}\x{fe0f} take note" => 11 }; ```

Note: In the terminal the ✏️line is aligned ok (on rt it looks like the 🤔does on the terminal)

The issue, I think, is that the author of the terminal program is going by this statement in UAX 11: When processing or displaying data ... [UTS51] emoji presentation sequences behave as though they were East Asian Wide, regardless of their assigned East_Asian_Width property value. But this routine doesn't do that.
