Today's CVS snapshot, Thu, 2002 Jul 18  11:4 UTC,
GNU Emacs (i686-pc-linux-gnu, X toolkit)
with patch to xdisp.c from address@hidden (Kim F. Storm)
starting Emacs with:

    emacs -q --no-site-file --eval '(blink-cursor-mode 0)'

   The second bug ... bring up NEWS, activate ruler-mode and scroll

   to behave incorrectly.

I tried this and may have seen the bug when I was changing margins
and fill columns.  In any case, the bug is not obvious to me, who
has never used ruler-mode.

Please tell us how to create the bug so it's existence is more

I think this will help get other people, some of whom may not have
much experience with ruler-mode, to fix the bug. 

(By the way, ruler-mode is rather neat, I think I will use it when I
want to change the value of my fill column.  At the moment, however,
ruler-mode is setting the fill-column to two places less than the
location of my pointer on the ruler.)
