Your analysis is convincing (and makes explicit what I vaguely suspected
about point being on the last line; moreover, I was mistaken in saying
that the amount scrolled was different from doing `C-l': it depends on
which line point is on when you type `C-l', of course).  In addition,
the workaround is acceptable, so I'm closing this bug.

Two questions remain for me: (i) Since I use the Calendar pretty much
daily and the triggering configuration comes up about every four weeks,
why don't I remember seeing this before? (This isn't a question I think
you can answer; I guess my memory just isn't good enough.) (ii) Why
doesn't "the problem" happen in the trunk build with toolkit scroll
bars?  Is this perhaps because Martin's window changes add an extra
pixel or two, leaving enough space?
