* bug#47498: 28.0.50; follow-mode misses a line with tiling window manager

I see one hidden line when using follow-mode.

Steps to reproduce:

0. emacs -Q
1. C-h i
2. C-x 2
3. M-x follow-mode RET

There is now one line missing from the display.  When using
`display-line-numbers-mode', this effect is more obvious.

I use the tiling window manager XMonad, and Emacs is forced to full
screen.  It has the same dimensions as my screen, and I have no window
decorations.  My resolution is 2560x1440 and the `default' face is:

ftcrhb:-Bits-Bitstream Vera Sans
Mono-normal-normal-normal-*-16-*-*-*-m-0-iso10646-1

My guess is that the last line is displayed, but only the top few pixels
are visible, so it looks like it is not there at all.

When I change the Emacs window to be floating and resize manually, I
can't reproduce this bug.  The window size will then snap to lines and
all lines are visible.

This bug is reproducible with both Lucid and GTK.

From my POV, follow-mode's design is fundamentally flawed, when
variable-size fonts and fractional line display are considered.  It
attempts to solve several problems that cannot be solved in principle,
unless the only font on display is the default face's font, and the
windows display an integral number of text lines.  It's a small wonder
in my eyes that display problems caused by follow-mode are so minor,
even subtle.  My advice is to stay away of it, if you want perfect
display.

Oh, and let's not forget features like display properties and
overlays, which can disrupt the display continuity if they happen on
the last line of the left window and continue into the first line of
the right one.  That's because follow-mode works by forcing the
window's start point, but Emacs is unable to have the window-start
point in the middle of a display property or overlay string.

Why C-x 2?  The whole idea of `follow-mode' is based on C-x 3.  Or am I
missing something?

Which line?  Can you post a screenshot?

Sorry, yes, that step should indeed be `C-x 3'.

Probably because there's a header-line, or the bread-crumbs display
property at the top of the window.

I see it now here.  Looks like a problem with `pos-visible-in-window-p'
when the frame is maximized.  How these could be related is not clear to
me.

Yes, something like that.  I can't reproduce this in e.g. `C-h C-n'.
