Thanks, the above is already a lot of valuable info.

I have a couple of follow up questions:

  . Can you show the entire value returned by Fpos_visible_in_window_p
    when its call from Fposn_at_point returns, when this problem is
    reproduced?  If you load the file .gdbinit that is located in the
    Emacs src directory, then displaying the return value is simple:
    type "pp tem" at the GDB prompt, after Fpos_visible_in_window_p

  . You say "pdf-tools (and doc-view) let you scroll the buffer, but
    never move point" -- can you point me to code in pdf-tools that
    does this?
