Hmm... there's obviously something I do not understand here.
Your example had two buffers with *different sizes* (one with 2 pages, the
other with 3 lines).  I myself have never noticed a difference between
"overscroll" and "normallscroll" behavior in Emacs, and indeed the code
makes no such distinction so the behavior should be exactly the same.
