If that position is outside the window, you should be able to use
window-text-pixel-size to get the information.

Sorry, I don't understand how this is relevant pos-visible-in-window-p
can tell you the pixel coordinates of EOB if it is inside the window.
If the EOB is inside the window, you should not scroll at all and
return immediately, so as to avoid the annoying error.

Patches welcome.
