vpos is garbage because line 3631 was not yet executed, you stopped
_before_ it.

Since you put the mouse highlighting on the 1st line of the window,
its vpos is zero, so the fact that the call to update_window_line
returned with mouse_face_overwritten_p set to zero means that the bug
is present.  At this point, if you look at the Emacs display, is the
mouse highlighting still visible?  I believe in the non-GTK build the
highlighting disappears when update_window_line is called for the line
with highlighting.

In your example, we are past it when vpos is zero.

I think you are in the wrong call to update_window_line (for another
window).  At this point, type "continue" and repeat the above steps
when you are inside update_window_line again.  I think this next call
to update_window_line is for the correct window.
