Thank you for the referral to the library `nlinum-mode`.  I've downloaded it 
and tried it out, and will keep it in my ever growing bag of goodies.  I'll 
need to try it out over time with my various minor modes to see how they play 

I understand that the Emacs team may wish to discontinue `linum-mode` in favor 
of `nlinum-mode`, so this bug report (#17787) can be closed out at your 

I've gone ahead and made a first draft of the fix to `linum-mode`, which is 
dependent upon the global variable `scroll-margin` being set to zero (as that 
is the circumstance whereby the `window-scroll-functions` hook makes a second 
run).  When the `scroll-margin` is set to something like 2 (instead of zero), 
the condition `(not (> (point) (window-end win t)))` will prevent the function 
from working.



(defun linum-update-current ()
        (not (minibufferp))
        (window-live-p (get-buffer-window (current-buffer))))
    (setq old-window-start (window-start))
    (setq old-window-end (window-end))
    (setq old-window-end-forced (window-end nil t))
          (not (< (point) old-window-start))
          (not (> (point) old-window-end))
          (not (> (point) old-window-end-forced)))
      (linum-update (current-buffer)))))

(defun linum-after-scroll (win _start)
        (not (> (point) (window-end win t))) ;; contingent upon `scroll-margin 
        (not (minibufferp))
        (window-live-p (get-buffer-window (current-buffer))))
          (< (point) old-window-start)
          (> (point) old-window-end)
          (> (point) old-window-end-forced))
      (let* (
          (new-window-start _start)
          (new-window-end (window-end win t)))
        (linum-update (window-buffer win))
        (setq old-window-start nil)
        (setq old-window-end nil)
        (setq old-window-end-forced nil)))))
