The cause of this is this:
(i) The C-n moves point from the last full line of LH window (L33) to
partial line in LH window (L34).
(ii) Follow Mode's post-command-hook determines that point should move
to the RH window, and sets up the windows correctly for this.
(iii) To try to avoid the LH window scrolling, follow mode does this (at
follow-adjust-window L+94:

          ;; If a new window was selected, make sure that the old is
          ;; not scrolled when point is outside the window.
          (unless (eq win (selected-window))
            (let ((p (window-point win)))
              (set-window-start win (window-start win) nil)
              (set-window-point win p))))

Here, `win' is the LH window.  It specifically calls set-window-start
with a nil NO-FORCE argument to try to ensure the redisplay will move
point into the window rather than scrolling the window to include point.

(iv) Redisplay sees w->force_start true and
make_cursor_line_fully_visible_p also true.  These conflict with
eachother here.  Priority is given to make_cursor_...._p.

Why does w->force_start not have priority here?
