First off, there was a very important brain fart in what I just said. I
meant C-n/C-p instead of C-f/C-b everywhere in this bug report. Oops.
This was probably the worst way to mess up this bug report. Hopefully it
makes a bit more sense now. Sorry.

C-x = does report the same value with C-n/C-p pressed as long as there
is room to scroll; if we're already looking at the start of the
document, then C-p does the normal unbugged thing, since it can't scroll
back any further.

Like I said above, I badly flubbed the report; it's actually about
C-n/C-p. And yes; reverting that revision makes things work again.

Any file does it. I use the output of `seq 1000`, which is not very

No. The edge of the buffer looks like it aligns with the bottom edge of
the last line of text, at least to my eye. If I mess with the displayed
text more by pressing C-x C-+ several times then the last line IS only
partially visible. Then I get the same point-getting-stuck behavior, but
it recovers after a handful of scroll-only C-n presses. The exact number
depends on window size, font size, how many times C-x C-+ was pressed,

No. That fixes it.

I suspect this is font-dependent because it has something to do with the
pixel height of the font text. Can you reproduce by keeping whaever font
you're using and pressing C-x C-+ a few times? As I described earlier
this usually sticks the point for only a few C-n presses, but it's
probably the same issue.

I just did some minor debugging by adding a trace to
(window-line-height) with (trace-function-background). If I turn off
global-hl-line-mode, then the bug goes away, and (window-line-height)
appears to return reasonable values. With global-hl-line-mode,
(window-line-height) and (window-line-height -1) both return nil
supposedly. Not sure how line-move-partial could keep working without
error in that case, but that's what it says.

Thank YOU!
