Hmm... I wonder why did we enter this area of the code, i.e. why did
this condition fire:

  /* Handle case where place to start displaying has been specified,
     unless the specified location is outside the accessible range.  */
  if (w->force_start || window_frozen_p (w))

Was w->force_start non-zero, or did window_frozen_p return non-zero?
If the former, can you see where was the force_start flag set?  (I'd
be surprised if it's the latter, since windows are only frozen when we
grow the minibuffer, which shouldn't be happening here, I think.)

In general, if the force_start flag of a window is set, that means we
shouldn't scroll, so bringing point back into view makes sense.
