Re: moving point and invisible text

It looks like the your code to move point out of invisible text is not
behaving consistently.  The previous invisible/intangible code, which
your code replaced, worked consistently.

Here is what martin rudalics <address@hidden> said:

    Stefan then told me that

       The behavior depends on many things: whether the invisible text is 
       by ellipsis, whether the invisible property is front-sticky and/or
       rear-sticky, whether the command made changes to the buffer, ...

    Not really: It rarely ever moves "point forward past the first visible
    character that follows the invisible text", that is, position 18.  (It
    does so only with `line-move-ignore-invisible' nil.)

It needs to consistently allow one of the two possible point positions
next to invisible text--either just before it, or just after it--and
not allow the other.

Would you please work on fixing this?
