[BTW Johann: to CC the bug tracker, use address@hidden, not
address@hidden, since this will create a new bug, and has the
potential to annoy maintainers :-). I'm guilty of that too, since I
replied to all in the email you did that (and so created another bug).]

I guess he is, yes. It's a problem I didn't encounter during
development because the face properties of the Flymake overlays and the
region don't clash when using the default settings.

In Flymake multiple overlays (error, warning, note) can overlap and
priorities are used so that an error is never hidden by a note. I based
thosed priorities in the 100's range (so note = 101, warning=102,
error=103, sth like that). 100 was a number chosen quite arbitrarily
which worked fine until Johann noticed the bug (I do think it's a bug).

Perhaps it isn't. Can you point me to other packages that leave
persistent region-resisting overlays in the buffer? (or that "play nice"
with the region, for some meaning of "nice").
