Thanks for this very helpful tip.

Hm, I have failed to find where its value becomes 1; every time I typed
`p mouse_face_overwritten_p' while stepping over the code, the value was
0.  I also tried `watch mouse_face_overwritten_p' at each update_window
breakpoint: that found where the value was set to 0, but every other
watchpoint was deleted unchanged after the program left the containing
block.

Here's the protocol of an attempt to do this (with the Athena build of
Emacs 24):

When I hit RET at the gdb prompt before UNBLOCK_INPUT, the highlighting
vanished.
