OK, one suspect down.

No, it's not useful.  But I wonder why earlier you thought that this
didn't happen at normal speed.  Is it more rare at normal speed?

When I replay that typescript on fencepost.gnu.org (logging into it
via PuTTY, which emulates xterm), I see no glitches at all, FWIW.

Interestingly, there's a cursor shown in the image to the left of
"Visit New File" menu item; it shouldn't be there.

Moreover, if I login to fencepost, set my terminal's height to be 24
lines, like in your screenshot, and then record the termscript with
the same 3 keystrokes as you did, I get an identical script!  So Emacs
behaves identically on these 2 systems, it's something in the terminal
emulators and/or the libraries they use that causes the differences in

Can you reproduce the problem when you log into that Debian testing
system remotely, via some xterm emulator?  If so, I'd appreciate an
SSH login to that system, and a directory with an Emacs tree to play
in.  Thanks.
