Okay, I've done some experimenting, and unfortunately, I have been
unable to recreate this problem using this recipe using emacs -Q -nw.
I've only encountered it using an X window.  In this environment, I was
able to recreate the problem consistently.  I was able to replace the
initial "3*C-v 7*C-n" in the macro with "100*C-n C-l" and this allowed
it to work with larger frame sizes.  Don't ask me why the C-l is
necessary, as I do not know.
