      The question isn't what the problem is. The question is, what's the
      solution? We both agree that changing the look-back length _only_
      solves this issue if we set look-back >= file-line-number. That's a fact.

      Yes, hilight will simply have to look back until it finds the first
      anchor outside of the window's view port. That way, you get global and
      scalable highlighting, for any language or file size. And I suspect
      it's pretty easy to do: Could someone who knows the source code well
      give clear instructions of what needs to change and the potential
      pitfalls to watch for?
