Indeed, pre-redisplay-function appears to work well.  The following
patch, which moves follow-mode's embedding in Emacs from
post-command-hook to pre-redisplay-function appears to solve the
original bug (Unwanted scrolling after `f' in edebug) completely.

Any objection from anybody to me committing this change to master?
