recenter and visual-line-mode

I don't know if this is a bug or an expected behavior.

With visual-line-mode on, running (recenter 0) doesn't always put the
point on the top-most line in the window.

I experimented a bit and it seems that (recenter 0) doesn't work if
the point is on the portion of the word that was moved down because of

For example, I have word "foobar" where "bar" can't fit on the line.
With visual-line-mode off (and truncate-lines nil), "foo" will be one
visual line and then "bar" on the next. If I turn on visual-line-mode,
the whole "foobar" would move to the next visual line. If I then run
(recenter 0) while point is inside "foo", the lines will move such
that point ends up on line 2, but if I do it while the point is inside
"bar" then the point will end up on line 1. I think the correct
behavior would be to move to line 1 always.

Is this a bug?

I'm using emacs 24.4.1 with Motif toolkit.
