The \copyboxline command doesn't stop at the end of the requested line.

BTW: Is it possible to have unbox command to get the width of the 
content in the lines without the spaces at the begin end. This is useful 
to get the width of first/last line in a box.

%% begin example


\setbox2\ruledhbox{\copyboxline 0 2}
\setbox4\ruledhbox{\boxline 0 3}
%\setbox6           \boxline 0 5 % error

[2] [\box2] \par
[3] [\box4] \par
[5] [\box6] \par

%% end example
