Re: variable width space display property value has no effect in empty overlay

An overlay spanning 0 characters with a display property set to an
image displays the image (when the move-on-insertion properties of the
overlay ends are equal, it serves more or less as a visible marker).
I wasn't aware of that.
It does not seem consistent if other display properties intended to
mask the underlying character range (even if empty) do not behave
I agree, it seems inconsistent, and perhaps it ought to be changed.
Finding someone who can change it and wants to change it is a harder
issue. Do we have anyone who understands that code?
