Because this is a development issue, please followup to rhl-devel-list.

The problem is, I think, reviewing it to make sure that it doesn't break
anything else.  A description of exactly why the change is a fix can help
for things like this.

-    newtGotorc(co->top + (li->currItem - li->startShowItem) + 1, co->left + 1);+    newtGotorc(co->top + (li->currItem - li->startShowItem) + li->bdyAdjust,
+               co->left + li->bdxAdjust);

I note that bdxAdjust is set only to 0 or 2, and it's not at all clear
to me how changing bdxAdjust applies to this bug report from the
description.  It might still be correct or an improvement, but it is
not clear at a short read why it is either.

The change to bdyAdjust makes sense to me as a fix for this bug report.
