I think this wasn't clear in my original bug report: the replacement
*does* occur -- the display shows the result of the substitution upon
first display. (see first attached screenshot).

It even properly switches back and forth between the composition and
original form with unprettify-at-point. (see second attachment)

The problem is that the *redisplays* (e.g. as triggered by moving the
highlight around with hl-line-mode) mess up the lines around the
replacement. See third and fourth screenshots.

If you are telling me that (compose-region) should never have agreed to
operate on a range of symbols with different faces, then I have
counter-evidence that it does. If you are telling me that it shouldn't,
then maybe that's where the bug really lies.
