Indeed, this was my conclusion as well.  (Except that PT is not quite
right, as the window could be displaying a buffer that is not the
current one at that early point in redisplay_window.)

What this caused was that the window redisplay was mistakenly skipped,
but then we marked that window's display "accurate", which confused
the heck out of the display engine.

So I installed the patch below to fix this regression, and I'm marking
this bug done.  Feel free to reopen if there are any leftovers.

Btw, I strongly recommend against messing with window-start (or
anything else that potentially requires redisplay) in a
post-command-hook: doing so disables some important redisplay
optimizations, and can easily trigger subtle misfeatures.  I suggest
to look for a better method to do what follow-mode needs to do, even
if that means we'd have to implement a special hook we don't yet have.
