bug#11249: 24.1.50; Overlay with face property causes calendar buffer to

From: Toby Cubitt
Subject: bug#11249: 24.1.50; Overlay with face property causes calendar buffer to scroll
Date: Sun, 15 Apr 2012 21:24:39 +0200
User-agent: Mutt/1.5.21 (2010-09-15)

Steps to reproduce:

1. emacs -Q
2. M-x calendar
3. M-: (setq o (make-overlay 1 2))
4. M-: (overlay-put o 'face 'font-lock-warning-face)
5. Use C-n to move point to date in the last line of calendar


When the point moves to the last line of the calendar in step 5., the
calendar buffer scrolls down, so that the top part of the calendar
scrolls off the top of the window and can't be seen.

This scrolling bug doesn't occur if a calendar buffer is displayed
normally, without creating any overlays (i.e. skipping steps 3. and
4. above).

Indeed, skipping just step 4. is sufficient to avoid triggering the
scrolling bug. So it looks like the bug is triggered by the presence of
an overlay with non-null 'face property in the calendar buffer. (One
futher point that might be useful to note: the bug is *not* triggered by
zero-length overlays.)

The above steps are a minimal sequence needed to reproduce the bug. In
everyday Emacs use, the bug is triggered by date selection via
`org-read-date' in org-mode (which uses an overlay with non-null 'face
property in the calendar buffer to highlight the current date).
