I think I now fixed the fundamental bug that caused these problems.
In general, vertical-motion and posn-at-point were broken when cursor
was positioned on a newline that came from a display string.

The bug was quite old, it exists at least in Emacs 23, perhaps even
before that.

Stefan and Chong, please eyeball the (highly non-trivial) changes in
revision 105900, I hope I didn't break anything.
