Thanks, I didn't know about C-x C-+.

OK.  For brevity, I'm going to call a window with a line too tall to be
fully displayed a "very small window".

With my follow mode patch that was installed in the emacs-26 branch, the
cursor will not remain in a very small non-last window[*], regardless of
whether it starts there as the font size is increased.  Instead it moves
to the next normal sized window (and this displays the correct text
line).  The cursor can remain in a very small last window.

[*] Actually, when the two last windows are both very small, the cursor
will stay in any window, if moved there with C-x o.

With my follow mode patch, and additionally,
make-cursor-line-fully-visible set to the function
follow-make-cursor-line-fully-visible-p, I observed exactly the same
behaviour.

I think this behaviour is acceptable for very small windows.
