I think it depends on the keyboard macro.  The ones I saw in that demo
did move point, moreover they moved it to the end of a very long line,
so both the actual redisplay and its simulation were at work,
including auto-hscroll.

I don't see how you can prevent that: macros are just a mechanical way
of recording and replaying commands, and commands sure do need to run
this code.

In any case, keyboard macros are not relevant to the discussion
(contrary to the subject line).  The issue is slow redisplay with long
