I don't think there is much sense in having line-move-visual mode active
when recording/replaying keyboard macros.

Tying the operation of keyboard macros to the current display/font
selection is just meaningless.  Its purpose is for _aiming_ positioning
by keyboard, and that's just not useful at keyboard replay.
