bug#2350: 23.0.90; compilation-mode inserts output in the wrong location

Please write in English if possible, because the Emacs maintainers
usually do not have translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list.

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

I started a long-running "compilation" that simply emmitted the time every two 

        M-x compile RET C-a C-k while sleep 2; do date; done RET

I then narrowed the *compilation* buffer to the first few lines:

        C-@ C-u C-n C-u C-n C-x n n

I then sat and watched as the current date got inserted at the end of my
narrowed region.  I'd expected it to be inserted instead at the end of
the buffer, even though that happened to be invisible.

This is arguably not a bug, but the behavior I'd expected is indeed
useful: sometimes when a compilation is running, I want to study just
part of the output, and it's convenient to narrow to just the part I
want.  With the current behavior, though, in order to avoid getting the
*compilation* buffer's lines all mixed up, I must copy the interesting
region to another buffer.
