FWIW I've encountered this issue before and this diff does not solve the
problem for me. I mostly see it when using the 3rd-party package
macroexpand with nlinum. Expanding and closing a macro will leave
several lines with no line number (from the 2nd line of the macro until
the last line of the macro).

I've tried to use edebug on nlinum--region to figure out what's going
on, but it doesn't seem to be triggering for some reason.
