This is not a bug, but a feature: Emacs does not allow the cursor to
enter a partially visible line; it scrolls the buffer to make the line
with the cursor fully visible. Displaying characters in the
font-lock-warning-face makes them slightly larger (because that face
makes the characters bold), and that can cause the last line to exceed
the visible portion of the window.
> The above steps are a minimal sequence needed to reproduce the bug. In

> `org-read-date' in org-mode (which uses an overlay with non-null 'face
> property in the calendar buffer to highlight the current date).
If that face also enlarges the characters, this is a feature of the
Emacs display engine.
