bug#23555: 24.5; Keyboard macros unexpectedly depend on frame size

To reproduce this issue, please first fetch rep.txt from:


and then invoke Emacs as follows:

    $ emacs -Q -g 80x30 rep.txt

The issue depends critically on the frame size. I can reproduce the
issue if the last line that I still see in the buffer (when point is at
the beginning of the buffer) is the line containing "false." in the
definition of declarative_false/0, i.e., line 28 in the file.

We now define a keyboard macro that is supposed to remove the 8 spaces
that indent all code snippets that appear within the 4 <pre> blocks.

With point at the beginning of the buffer, please press C-x ( to start
recording, and then press the following keys:

     C-s <pre RET C-n C-a C-s </pre RET C-p C-b C-x r k C-n

Then finish recording with C-x ).

If the macro is defined as intended, the following commands are
recorded, which you can verify with M-x edit-kbd-macro RET:


        C-s                     ;; isearch-forward
        <pre                    ;; self-insert-command * 4
        RET                     ;; newline
        C-n                     ;; next-line
        C-a                     ;; move-beginning-of-line
        C-s                     ;; isearch-forward
        </pre                   ;; self-insert-command * 5
        RET                     ;; newline
        C-p                     ;; previous-line
        C-b                     ;; backward-char
        C-x r k                 ;; kill-rectangle
        C-n                     ;; next-line

Press C-_ or revert the buffer to undo everything that was done while
recording macro, so that we now start again with the initial content and
point at the beginning of the buffer.

Next, simply execute the macro, repeatedly, with:

    C-x e e e e

After this, you will see that the fourth <pre> block is unexpectedly
changed to:



whereas the expected result it:

mi2_safe(g(G)) :-
        (   safe_goal(G) ->
            mi_clause(G, Body),
        ;   throw(cannot_execute(G))

However, if I revert all changes and simply enlarge the frame, or try
the exact same sequence after removing the filler text between lines 33
and 52, or try the macro on the fourth snippet while the <pre> block is
completely in view, everything works exactly as expected.

Thus, implicit scrolling and the frame size may unexpectedly interact
with this keyboard macro.
