The problem apparently is the call to

in SwVisibleCursor::SetPosAndShow (sw/source/core/crsr/viscrs.cxx), 
which modifies aRect (SwAlignRect in sw/source/core/layout/paintfrm.cxx 
says: "adjust rectangle on pixel level in order to make sure, that the 
border 'leaves its original pixel', if it has to").  On my Linux box 
that transforms from 1x277@(1473,1750) to EMPTY:0x276@(1475,1750), while 
on my Windows box it transforms from 1x277@(6287,1418) to 

Miklos, in light of that maybe you have an idea how to improve your test?
