AFAIU, this means the window is not being redrawn on each
forward-line; not even its mode line is updated.  You should be able
to confirm this if you turn on trace-redisplay (assuming you've built
with GLYPH_DEBUG, a.k.a. "--enable-checking=glyphs") -- you will not
see the window announced in the trace.  (Btw, turning off
blink-cursor-mode removes a lot of clutter from the redisplay trace,
so I suggest to do that in these experiments.)

If you add to the function that calls forward-line a message showing
point, do you see the value of point move on each forward-line even
though the window is not redrawn?

Actually, I'm not so sure those are strange: rare situations with
pixel dimensions might be only exposed by such techniques.

What is last_visible_y in that window?  To see that, step into
try_window called on line 16235, wait until it calls start_display,
and look at it.last_visible_y.

Yes, just print it:


If this doesn't work, perhaps you didn't build with -g3, or your
compiler is buggy.
