      Interesting ...

      If you define a file XXX with the content:

      function! Load()
      let list = [
      \ {
      \ 'filename': 'XXX',
      \ 'lnum': 2,
      \ 'col': 5,
      \ 'vcol': 1,
      \ 'text': 'This is some line',
      \ 'kind': 'marker',
      \ 'type': 'r',
      \ 'nr': 1
      \ }
      \ ]
      call setqflist(list)

      function! Show()
      echo getqflist()
      And then
      :call Load()
      :call Show()

      I echos as expected.
      If you a lines before line 2 or delete line 1,
      calling Show() echos a "corrected" value for the
      But, it you delete line 2, the quickfix entry for
      line 2 is still echoed back by Show.

      If you then add new lines to the top of the file,
      then Show echos back lnum as 2 + number of lines added.

      So, getqflist()/setqflist() work when removing lines
      before a line but not when the line itself is deleted.
      Or at least thats what I am seeing.


      I assume, but have not tested, if one marks a line
      with a "normal" mark and then deletes the line,
      the mark also goes away.
