I'm not sure this is not the expected behavior.  This means the blank
buffer you see is just the last empty line with EOB.  The Emacs
display engine should not normally allow that, it should show the last
line before EOB.

When I repeat the recipe there, both with Emacs 25.0.95 and 25.1.50,
point is positioned at the end of the line, both after "C-M-x C-/" and
"C-h f C-g C-M-x C-/".  So I see consistent behavior.  Perhaps undo
gurus could comment whether this is also the correct behavior.

Unfortunately, I can't reproduce any of them.
