I have a feeling this fix is not enough.  It seems to me
that if you delete a selection in this way, then type
several more self-inserting characters, none of them should
overwrite.  Don't you agree?

At the same time, the most natural way to achieve that result
is to turn off overwrite.  I have to wonder, is it reasonable
to turn on both Overwrite mode and Delsel mode?  What was your
motive for using them together?
