Funny, I feel the same but in reverse.  Your patch should only affect
the case where overlays are deleted/moved by modification hooks which is
already a grey area, so the change is *probably* okay; but I would put
it in master in case of unforseen side effects.

I can confirm it works, and the change seems generally sensible.  I
think it does make sense to have the xdisp.c change as well.  The choice
of branch is up to you, of course.
