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?
