Is this new problem one you anticipated?  I thought you were worried
about problems arising from heavy use of display properties, but this
doesn't involve any.  Anyway, I really do wish I knew how to debug this
myself.  I tried stepping though Fvertical_motion but that has many
calls to other parts of the code and I couldn't follow it well -- didn't
know what could be skipped over, or what values to test, etc.  It looked
like point moved into the fringe after a call to, I think, read_char but
I couldn't tell if that was really the trigger (doesn't seem likely).
Of course, I would be grateful if you'd give me any help or advice about
how to debug it, but I suspect that wouldn't be less burdensome to you
than debugging it yourself ;-)

Well, I hope you agree what started this is a real bug.  If you, Stefan
or other Emacs maintainers tell me it's not worth fixing, I can live
with that.  But as long as long as it's not fixed, other people may
encounter it and report it again....

No, with my patch and without yours, this problem goes away.  So then
we're back to the previous problem.... ;-)
