More accurately, "large enough" is the number of screen lines taken by
the overlay string.  In my case, it was 7.

This is a bug in visual line movement.  Visual line movement was
introduced in Emacs 23, that's why you don't see this in Emacs 22.  In
Emacs 23, the cursor gets stuck similarly, so this is not a regression
wrt Emacs 23.  Disable line-move-visual with the current 24 trunk, and
the problem will go away in Emacs 24 as well.

I will take a look when I have time.
