Then I understand the bug in the other way around.  With the fixes, I see the
cursor at positions, blinking, where the point isn't.  Just use the same test
case: point is at beginning of line, and scrolling I see the cursor blinking in
the middle of the line.

If I can suggest a solution for this, I would like to have the cursor blinking
at the fringe (right fringe if point is before what we see, left fringe if point
is after the displayed text), to sign clearly that the cursor is *not* in the
