It's a bug in the design of linum-mode: it puts the overlay that
displays the line numbers on the first character of each line.  So
when that first character is not displayed, the overlay is not shown
either.

A possible fix would be to move the overlay to the first visible
character after the horizontal scroll.  Patches welcome.

Thanks.
