If you call set-window-start with last argument non-nil, redisplay is
under no obligation to honor your window-start.  It tries to use it,
but if it doesn't fit, for whatever reason, it disregards it.

So as along as you call set-window-start this way, you cannot rely on
the window-start point you set to be honored.  It might be, except
when it won't be.
