    The function I added returns an array with 2 sub-arrays, one with
    newline positions according to the cache, the other with newline
    positions according to the actual buffer contents.

That may take a very long time for my RMAIL buffer, which is 4 meg.  I
don't think I could tolerate having that run after each Rmail command.

To make this fast enough for me to use it to localize the bug, it
needs to operate only on a specified part of the buffer.  Maybe that
will make it fast enough.  If not, it needs to be optimized in other
ways too.
