Sorry for the delay; I just got the time to look at this in detail.

Currently, Emacs uses the `face' property for the display property, but
not the before-string and after-string properties.  This is a rather
ambiguous corner case for the interaction of different overlay
properties, and my inclination is to leave it alone.  If you wish to
change the face of either one of these strings, you can add the `face'
text property to the string, and this will be displayed correctly.

Does anyone have any objection?  If not, I'll shortly update the elisp
manual to clarify this issue.
