I doubt that.  Using a build of November 19th I can reproduce this on
Linux as well.  As Savannah is down, I cannot test a recent one.

The problem is an inifite loop in the function `try_scrolling' in
`xdisp.c'.  You can find my bug report and the following discussion in
the archive¹ of this mailing list.

There was some private mail exchange as well and I got a patch for the
version of `xdisp.c' back then from Gerd Moellmann which prevents the
infinite loop from happening but makes scrolling quite erratic.  If
somebody is interested, I can post it here.  After I received the
patch the discussion stopped unfortunately.
