It seems that BUFFER_POS_REACHED_P at least misses the opportunity to
stop immediately before *any* glyph in the display vector has been
consumed, i.e. when dpvec_index == 0. (Or the problem is not with
BUFFER_POS_REACHED_P but with how it's being used.)

emacs -Q

C-u 2000 C-q 0 RET

Notice that the lines visible in the window start with "@^".

Press <up> until the top of the buffer just scrolls into view.

Notice that lines before point start with "^@", and lines after
point start with "@^".

Change BUFFER_POS_REACHED_P (or something) so that dpvec_index == 0 is
an acceptable stop position and this problem doesn't happen.
