Does any of them cause the problem I tried to fix?  IOW, if any of
these include the form (setq line-spacing 1.0), does evaluating it
fail to redraw the selected window with the new line-spacing?

I singled it out because it was the only situation I saw where the
evaluation had no effect.

The problem here was not to call redisplay -- it is always entered
after Emacs finishes running the last command, in this case "C-x C-e".
The problem was to tell redisplay it should consider redrawing the
selected window even though no change happened in the buffer displayed
in that window.
