This problem is already solved by enabling lazy-highlighting of the whole
follow-mode buffer, but I postponed installing that patch to not create merge
conflicts with your work in the same functions.

That's because isearch-post-command-hook uses isearch-pre-scroll-point
to move it back, so it's possible to nullify isearch-pre-scroll-point
in follow-mode, but I see that it leaves the highlighted found string
at its old position because the isearch-allow-scroll feature doesn't support
finding the next search hit after scrolling, or something like this
that would make sense.  IOW, this is a limitation of isearch-allow-scroll.

I see the same behavior even without Isearch.

Honestly, I see here nothing that requires a new multi-window framework.
