Ditto.

BUG #3:  An overlay's after-string property is not displayed if an
immediately following overlay has the empty string as its display
property.

Reproduce with this expression:

  (test-in-fresh-buffer-and-window
   (insert "ABCD")
   (let ((o1 (make-overlay 2 3))
         (o2 (make-overlay 3 4)))
     (overlay-put o1 'after-string "1")
     (overlay-put o2 'display "")))

The above expression should display “AB1D”.
The above expression wrongly actually displays “ABD”.

Same details as in last message.

I hope this bug report is helpful.
