Then I guess you already have the solution that fits your needs,
right?

By default, they are scrolled, exactly as they are when
auto-hscroll-mode is t.  You are saying that the 'current-line' mode
should behave differently because of some different expectations in
that specific case.  That's debatable, but the fact is the code which
implements that mode was never meant to change this basic behavior of
horizontal scrolling.

If someone wants to write code to cater also to the behavior you want
to see, I promise to review it.  But I won't myself work on this, as
this area of the Emacs display is already quite tricky and full of
subtleties.  Sorry.
