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?
