Hello, Eli.

It's been a couple of weeks since your last post, which I'm only just now
answering, so here's a quick summary:

1. Original bug: in follow mode, moving point into a partially displayed
line at end-of-window, then onto the next line, caused the LH window to
scroll up rather than point being moved into the RH window.

2. I wrote a patch to follow-mode (now installed on the emacs-26 branch)
which would move point away from that critical line, allowing follow-mode
to work.

3. You wrote a patch to the C code (now installed on master) whereby
make-cursor-line-fully-visible can be a function.  I wrote a function for
this (not yet installed) which returned nil for non-last follow windows.

4. The strategy in 3. was problematic, since C-x o into a follow window
where point was on the partially displayed last line wouldn't work -
follow-mode moved the cursor back into the original window.

5. I suggested that we use the solution in 2. for master, too, discarding
3.  You countered by asking what would happen if a window's first line is
taller than the window.  (See below.)

I've tried a few ways of getting such a window, but without luck.  Emacs
is very good at making sure a window is no smaller than one line tall.
;-)

Is it possible to create such a line in a window, probably with lisp?  Or
was your question more a prompt to me to handle this unlikely situation
gracefully?
