The last sentence exactly means that the bug is rare.

Customize display-time-interval to 1 (after restoring the sit-for that
got deleted), and you've got that.  I'm running for years with that
variable customized to 5 sec, and never saw any unwarranted movement
of point or scrolling.  That's "rare" in my book.

The bug database is replete with problems that are not reproducible,
so I'm quite sure people would report them regardless.
