To check if that is indeed a bug worth reporting, or if it is already
known, or even already fixed?

Which point is that? When the whole additional spacing is visible?

As a user, I’d expect that additional spacing does not count toward
whether the line is considered visible.

Thank you.

I was in the middle of a $DAYJOB task, and reached for the quickest fix.

But no, not really. On the contrary, I am compelled to add more
kludges^W idiosyncratic code.

There are two special cases. One when the point is initially in the
bottommost visible line whose additional spacing is outside view; in
this case, (scroll-up 1) would cause the jump. This can indeed be
detected with (pos-visible-in-window-p) returning nil.

The other special case is when the point is in the topmost visible
line. In this case, (scroll-up 1) is forced to move the point into
view. The point is moved to the beginning of the new topmost visible
line, even if it was in the middle of the line initially. Here I want
behavior equivalent to (next-line) followed by (scroll-up), i.e. to
keep column position.

I see no practical way to detect this condition without moving point.
The easiest that comes to mind is to check if the position one visual
line up from point is outside view.

Factoring out all relevant special case detection, I end up with this:

(defun yk-scroll--in-bottommost-line ()
  (not (pos-visible-in-window-p)))
(defun yk-scroll--in-topmost-line ()
    (let ((line-move-visual t))
    (not (pos-visible-in-window-p))))
(defun yk-scroll-up ()
      (scroll-up 1)))
    (let ((line-move-visual t))
    (scroll-up 1))
   (t (scroll-up 1))))
(defun yk-scroll-down ()
    (scroll-down 1))
   (t (scroll-down 1))))
