Huh?  Of course it can happen, indeed it's pretty common.  Any easy
way to cause it is to use a non-default mode-line face (e.g., a border
of size other than -1, or a different font), or include some fonts in
the buffer that have a height different than the default font-size
(e.g., just look at the HELLO buffer with `C-h h').

Emacs is generally quite flaky in this circumstance too.  I avoid
leaving my cursor in the last line because Emacs has a bad tendency to
scroll/jump randomly when it's there.
