This is a duplicate of the (old, but unsolved) bug #13452.  The
problem is not in beginning-of-line, it's in next-line: when the
window needs to scroll as result of next-line, point ends up in
columns 1, 2, 3, ... (i.e. gains one column per line moved down),
instead of sticking to column zero.

To work around, set line-move-visual to nil before running the macro
(or as part of the macro), then the problem goes away.

I'll try to debug this one of these days.
