A very subtle/obscure bug.  I have a hard time explaining the observed
behaviour.

1. emacs -Q
2. In the scratch buffer copy the following snippet and install it.

      (defvar count 1)
      (defun testing ()
        (interactive)
        (forward-line 1)
        (insert (with-temp-buffer
                  (insert (format "string-%d\n" (setq count (+ 1 count))))
                  (pop-to-buffer (current-buffer))
                  (buffer-string))))

3. M->

4. M-x testing
   C-x o

   M-x testing
   C-x o

   M-x testing
   C-x o

5. Expected behaviour: Point should be at the END of the scratch buffer

Observed behaviour: Not as expected.


Now comment out the `pop-to-buffer' in the snippet above, install the
changes and repeat.  You will see that the point is at END of the
scratch buffer.
