0. emacs -Q
1. M-: (setq split-window-keep-point nil) RET
2. Visit the attached file.
3. C-x 2

The point in the original (top) window has moved (unnecessarily) from
the first line to the last visible one.

The docstring of the variable `split-window-keep-point' says:

 If non-nil, C-x 2 preserves point in the new window.
 If nil, adjust point in the two windows to minimize redisplay.

But in this case there was no need to adjust point, because it was in
a position which would remain visible after the splitting.

This behavior is specially annoying if you are in a Dired buffer and
do `C-o' on a file (the point jumps to the last visible line).
