Yes; I don't see the bad effect with my post-new-window-code build
without the w->pointm change.

Is window-point set to 1 as a side effect of making the temporary

Do you have a suggestion how to reset point?

I don't see point moving when the window is split, only when -- with an
already split window -- the other window is selected.  Indeed, stepping
through both gnus-summary-select-article-buffer and other-window, I see
point move upon the call to select-window.  The comment at the top of
select_window seems relevant:

/* If select_window is called with inhibit_point_swap non-zero it will
   not store point of the old selected window's buffer back into that
   window's pointm slot.  This is needed by Fset_window_configuration to
   avoid that the display routine is called with selected_window set to
   Qnil causing a subsequent crash.  */

However, when I set a conditional breakpoint inhibit_point_swap!=0 this
did not interrupt execution, whereas with breakpoint select_window,
execution interrupts with inhibit_point_swap == 0, so I guess I don't
understand the comment.
