In the example that started this bug report, there's no danger of images
jumping or not being shown, so I don't understand why users would want
`C-n' to do anything but behave as normal; i.e., go to the next line.

That's a pretty fundamental thing to do, and if you can't rely on `C-n'
taking you to the next line, lots of things get very, very confusing.

Now, if you have an image that's higher than the window size, then, yes,
perhaps `C-n' should do something else than going to the next line.  But
having such an image is not the normal use case.  The normal use case is
to have lots of smaller images in the window.
