After looking over this thread again, I conclude we got totally
side-tracked on the question of whether this is a regression or not.
That's just a distraction.

I think it's reasonable to make rectangle--pos-cols preserve point.
Could you update your patch to

1. Use a single save-excursion around the whole body, instead of adding
several.

2. Rename rectangle--pos-cols to rectangle-pos-cols.

3. Add a docstring to rectangle-pos-cols.
