This shouldn't be necessary.  Try invoking linum-update (or whatever
function is put by linum-mode on the post-command hook) before/when
you display the buffer for the first time, and I think the problem
should go away.  It is caused by the fact that the line numbers are
not displayed until the first command that displays the buffer
finishes, and therefore any functions in that first command will not
be aware that the window has non-zero left margin.
