It is not supposed to move to the next line, it is supposed to vscroll
by the number of pixels that is the height of the default face's font
(16 pixels on my system, YMMV).  That is what line-move-visual option
does when auto-window-vscroll is non-nil, and both are on by default.

IOW, this is by design, except that Emacs was supposed to "shift" the
buffer by 1`6 pixels, not by the entire size of the image.

I will take a look to see why the vscroll scrolls by too much, but if
you don't want that at all, just customize auto-window-vscroll to nil.

That's because auto-window-vscroll is only in effect when moving by
single lines.
