[Openmcl-devel] How do I move the cursor in a window under program control?

This appears to be a regression.  It works properly even without my patch in 1.8 but doesn’t work in 1.10.  Apparently the problem is caused by some change deep in the GUI code because the code for editor-execute-expression-command and move-mark have not changed AFAICT.

I’ve opened a ticket.
