Thanks.  Which brand of GNU/Linux is that?

I don't think it's memory corruption.  I suspect the problem is
related to the different ways cmgoto chooses to get to the specified
screen coordinates.  If someone on the affected systems could tweak
cmgoto such that only the direct move is used, i.e. this code:

      p = (dcm == tty->Wcm->cm_habs
           ? tgoto (dcm, row, col)
           : tgoto (dcm, col, row));
      emacs_tputs (tty, p, 1, cmputc);
      curY (tty) = row, curX (tty) = col;

then perhaps we could see if my suspicions are in the right direction.
