If that were true, then all the `?' characters should
display as exclamation marks, but they don't, so the
`display' text property does not override `invisible'.

This still looks like a bug to me.

Let me state again what I see:  The `display' property
overrides `invisible' if and only if the previous character
is visible.  How is this reasonable or useful in any way?
