Hi Frank,

Thanks for the detailed bug report, I can reproduce it.  However,
right now I don't have the time to dig into it, but I found that the
issue should be in `TeX-region-create' and can be reproduced with
point on the "y" with

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(preview-region (preview-next-border t)
        (preview-next-border nil))
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

If someone else wants to look into it, please go ahead.
