There are redisplay optimizations that don't depend on whether we
consider a window for redisplay; see around line 13700 in xdisp.c from
emacs-24.  You will see a little ways below that place that we test
point against its recorded value in w->last_point, for example.

'with-selected-window makes' the offending window selected, and the
selected window is always considered for redisplay, right?

If you really want me to come up with a detailed explanation of why
the forward-line case doesn't need wset_redisplay, I can do that, but
it will require some digging.

My fixes where based on turning on trace-redisplay and observing
thereafter that, in the forward-line case the offending window was
shown in the trace, but always with an indication that the forced
window-start was OK, whereas in the recenter case the offending window
was not shown at all in the trace.
