bug#349: show-paren-mode overlay extending onto new text

In show-paren-mode, when point is after a closing paren so it and the
opener are highlighted, sometimes newly inserted text is covered with
the paren colour too, for a little while.

This doesn't happen all the time, but I've noticed in particular in
program output from M-x compile.  So from "emacs -Q",

    M-x show-paren-mode
    M-x compile
    echo -n '(hello)'; sleep 6; yes
    C-x o    # to *compilation* buffer
    M->      # go to end of buffer

    => the (hello) parens are highlighted

    => but then the output of "yes" is highlighted too

The "sleep 6" gives you a chance to switch to the compilation buffer,
the "echo -n" is so there's no trailing newline in the buffer yet.

An "echo" like this is of course a contrivance, but I've struck the
effect in real program output when switching to the buffer at a random
point or when a close paren is a genuine last bit of its output so far.

I guess for most insertions the timer or whatever gets a chance to reset
or hide the overlay, but for heavy running compile output maybe that
doesn't happen.  I wondered if the make-overlay in show-paren-function
might have the "rear-advance" arg nil, unless there's ever a time it
ought to extend.
