If the change below, when applied to the master branch, gives good
results, I will install it.

The results as I see after this change are not ideal (you cannot see
the entire overlay string, unless you manually hscroll the window with
"C-x >", and the cursor at EOB is not visible).  But at least the loop
is avoided, AFAICT, and there's only one "blink" of incorrect display.
Is this satisfactory enough to install this simple change?
