OK, I've narrowed it down to something having to do with ECB.  I took  
everything out of my Preferences.el except the ECB startup code, and I  
see the warping cursor behavior in most buffers when I start ECB.

In case you don't know, ECB is at


which has some special install instructions at


So what I did to test was start Emacs, start ECB with M-x ecb- 
activate, and C-x C-f to open my Preferences.el.  Scrolling around in  
the Preferences.el buffer results in strange point behavior (warping  
to different windows, bouncing around or getting "stuck" in code  

Is that a minimal enough report?

And is the correct "fix" simply to set the visual-line-mode global to  
nil in Preferences.el?
