The problem is that line-move-visual assumes that the move begins with
cursor positioned at point, which is false when auto-hscroll-mode is
turned off and point is scrolled out of view.
Before I dive into this mess (again), do we even want to support
auto-hscroll-mode nil _and_ visual line movement? What if we tell
line-move to invoke logical line movement instead when
auto-hscroll-mode is off? Would someone object?
