Thanks for following up.

Phillip's hypothesis assumes that there's another function in
pre-redisplay-function, which is called before cursor-sensor--detect
and switches to another buffer, leaving us there.  Do you indeed have
other functions on that list?  If so, what are they?

I'm asking because I'd like to be sure we are on the right track with
the root cause.
