bug#8914: 23.3; Overlay overlapping buffer-invisibility-spec behaves odd

Insert the text below into a buffer,

   M-x eval-buffer RET
   M-x toggle-invis

The smaller area remains visible, although there is a surrounding
overlay which has an invisibility spec which should cover the revealed

I suppose this is debatable, but intuitively I would expect the whole
larger region to be made invisible.

It seems similar to the case where faces properties are not merged when
one might expect them to be, e.g. see how mouse highlighting in *info*
buffer obliterates underline and colouring of text underneath.  See report
http://debbugs.gnu.org/cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=4911 (how can I find out the
status of this?)

      (add-to-invisibility-spec '(larger . t))
