I completely agree.

On the contrary, I want to replace the current behavior with
something that makes `invisible' _always_ override `display'.

The current behavior is for `invisible' to override `display'
in _almost_ every case.  In fact, all except one edge case.
I simply want to eliminate this anomaly, which is causing me
quite a bit of trouble.

Here is my use case:  I have some text that I want to make
invisible, so I set its `invisible' property to `t'.
The result:  If the first character happens to be an image
(or a pixel space), that and only that remains visible.
