Actually, this is also a problem with partial lines.  I didn't notice at
first, because Emacs produces a window with a partial line by default
when I do `C-x 2'.  AFAICT, it's not related with the new variable,
except that the problem becomes more obvious with maximal margins.  In
Emacs 25.1, using a window where (window-screen-lines) => 20.22, and a
scroll-margin of 100, doing `scroll-down-command' leaves 5 full lines
above point, while `scroll-up-command' leaves 4 full lines (and the
partial one) below point.

So in the code, I think the problem is that it.last_visible_y includes
the partial line, while this_scroll_margin is just the integer
scroll_margin multiplied by pixels per line.  I guess to fix it,
subtracting the partial line height would be more correct than

Looks like the same kind of problem as the other case, I can fix it
again by subtracting frame_line_height, though again, subtracting the
partial height is probably more correct.
