Yes.  When I tested the cursor motion changes about 1 1/2 months ago, I
didn't see any display glitches.  However, I tested trunk back then, and not
emacs-24, to be exact.

Nothing, except that this time I tried emacs-24.  I noticed you reworked
the patch just a few days ago, maybe that introduced the glitches?

Note that the cursor is placed correctly at the beginning of the menu
item, even if the menu item location is actually incorrect.  So the
cursor motion fix seems "fine", i.e., sync to the display glitches.
