bug#25777: 25.1; [PATCH] `rectangle--pos-cols' should not move point

From: Drew Adams
Subject: bug#25777: 25.1; [PATCH] `rectangle--pos-cols' should not move point
Date: Fri, 17 Feb 2017 09:51:01 -0800 (PST)

The code defining `rectangle--pos-cols' mistakenly moves point.  All of
the calls to `goto-char' in this function need to be wrapped in
`save-excursion'.  Below is a patch that does this.

(This bug causes a regression from the correct behavior in Emacs 24.5,

I think that most, if not all, of the other uses of `goto-char' in
rect.el also need to be wrapped with `save-excursion'.  But as I am not
sure of this, I leave it to someone else to take a close look and DTRT.
