Updated the interactive spec in the attached patch and made the
necessary changes to the manual and documentation.  I also missed a
place where `recenter-top-bottom' was calling `recenter' without passing
a non-nil value for REDISPLAY that I also fixed in the attached patch.

Let me know what you think.

Subject: [PATCH] Keep `recenter' behavior backward compatible when called

* window.c (recenter): Change the interactive spec to always pass a
  non-nil value to the REDISPLAY argument when called interactively.
* window.el (recenter-top-bottom): Make sure recenter's second
  argument is non-nil everywhere.
* windows.texi (Textual Scrolling): Edit documentation of `recenter'.
