I think you misunderstood the doc string.  It means that instead of

  (window-line-height)

you should use

  (pos-visible-in-window-p)

Using progn doesn't cut it, since it always returns the value of the
last form.  What you mean is probably this:

  (or (window-line-height)
      (pos-visible-in-window-p))

If this doesn't work for you, please show a precise recipe, starting
from "emacs -Q", to reproduce the situation where
pos-visible-in-window-p returns nil when it shouldn't.
