Yep, that it does.  And no trace messages are emitted.  So it seems some
fonts are sensitive to this distinction and others aren't.  What is the
crucial difference?

There are no trace messages while scrolling is normal; only after
redisplay stops (with >90% CPU load) and then recovers do the messages
appear, and they are all as above, with py=0.  I verified this by adding
a counter to the messages, and the first message emitted, with count=1,
shows py=0, as do all subsequent (none are overwritten).
