In modes that hide many lines from display, you should customize
display-line-numbers-width-start to a non-nil value, or manually set
display-line-numbers-width to a value large enough to accommodate the
last physical line of the file (e.g., in file-local variables).
Otherwise the default calculation of the width required for line
numbers will come up with a value that is lower than necessary, and
you will frequently see that some lines displayed in the window are
shifted to the right due to this miscalculation.

This issue is part of that more general problem.  What happens here is
that the original calculation of the width of line-number display is
incorrect, and the additional redisplay cycle caused by moving the
show-parent overlay "corrects" it.

Note that this effect is only seen on the last line of the file, and
AFAICS only as long as you don't save the buffer.

Based on the fact that having line numbers in buffers under
selective-display requires customization of the provided options,
which then makes this problem go away, I don't think any fix is
required for this use case.  If you agree, I will close this bug.
