The immediate cause of this bug is that the display iterator would
return zero at the end of the overlay string, and the display engine
would take that as a sign that it is done with redisplay, instead of
popping the stack and continuing to display the rest.

Unfortunately, fixing this and a couple of other blunders exposed by
the fix requires changes in places that are heavily used by the
display engine, and are not limited to left-fringe/right-fringe
display specs on a TTY alone.  See the diffs below.  They seem quite
simple, almost no-brainers, to me, but I've been wrong before when the
innermost bowels of the display engine are concerned.

So I'm not sure whether to apply this to the emacs-24 branch or the
trunk.  Here are the pros and cons for applying to the branch:

 . Pros:
   . The changes are by themselves quite simple.
   . They fix a number of problems that could bite us in other use cases:
     . the fact that left-fringe/right-fringe display property was
       incorrectly reported to the rest of the code as non-replacing,
       whereas in fact it was (the underlying text is not displayed);
     . incorrect condition in iterate_out_of_display_property for
       determining whether we are iterating a string or a buffer;
     . improper termination of display when there's more stuff on the
       iterator stack;
     . call to get_overlay_strings_1 without a check that we already
       have overlay strings loaded.

 . Cons:
   . This problem existed since v22.1, where left-fringe/right-fringe
     was first introduced.
   . Features that display bitmaps on the fringe generally need to
     treat the TTY case specially anyway.  This bug was exposed
     because Leo's code didn't.
   . Some of the changes touch very sensitive parts of the display
     engine on its lowest level: the iteration itself.
   . Prudence would suggest another pretest, should these changes be
     applied to the branch.

So I will await decision by Stefan and Chong before committing this.
In the meantime, Leo, please see that this fixes your problem, and
doesn't introduce any new ones.  TIA.
