Hmm... I can't reproduce it here (using "emacs -Q"):
- after opening dired.el I first have to search for "defun dired-get-filename"
because it's not immediately visible.
- once it's in sight, if I double-click on it, the whole expression is
selected&highlighted, point is moved to right after the matching close
paren, and as a consequence the window is redrawn to show the end of
the expression (since the beginning is now outside of the window).
I never use this feature, but I see the exact same behavior in
Emacs-24.3, so I assume it's the way it's always worked.
Can you reproduce the problem with "emacs -Q"?

Yes, it clearly the likely culprit.
