Exactly: if you have a marker showing you where is that "last-line", you
don't need the line-diff.  If you really want the beg/end of that line,
you `goto-char' to that marker and then use line-beginning-position and
line-end-position from there with no argument.

Oh, the gloabl-nlinum-mode was missing a ":group 'linum" argument!
