Yes, that's what happens.  And it cannot be avoided, AFAICS, when
scroll-conservatively is on.

What I see is that find_defun_start is called many times, with its
first argument moving from _end_ of the buffer backwards.  This
happens when Emacs needs to redisplay the last portion of the buffer,
immediately after the call to end-of-buffer.

Alan, I suspect that you tried to reproduce this without setting
scroll-conservatively to a value above 100.  Because otherwise this is
100% reproducible.

If you still cannot reproduce this, please tell us what information to
collect for you.

JIT Lock is triggered also when font-lock is turned on after the move
to end of the buffer.  But the difference seems to come from the fact
that under scroll-conservatively, we examine the buffer a little bit
above/below the window, when we decide where to put window-start.
