The (elisp) Display Tables node neglects to mention that changing the
vertical-border slot does not work on graphical terminals (compare
e.g. (set-display-table-slot standard-display-table 'vertical-border
(make-glyph-code 8214)) on graphical and non-graphics-capable displays)
(whereas it does mention this difference for the truncation and wrap
slots).
