Check for text properties and/or overlays on the affected region with C-u C-x =

Thanks. I should have thought of that when that bug happened! C-u C-x = gives the text properties at point.. it didn't occur that I put the point in the region that shows that highlight, hover the mouse over that region and then do C-u C-x =. I'll do so next time that happens :)

I faked a typo in a string, put the point in there and hovered the mouse to get the overlay. Then C-u C-x = gives:

Character code properties: customize what to show
  general-category: Ll (Letter, Lowercase)
  decomposition: (110) ('n')

There are 2 overlays here:
 From 32334 to 32339
  category             nil
  modification-hooks   [Show]
 From 32334 to 32339
  evaporate            t
  face                 flyspell-incorrect
  flyspell-overlay     t
  help-echo            "mouse-2: correct word at point"
  keymap               [Show]
  mouse-face           highlight

There are text properties here:
  face                 font-lock-string-face
  fontified            t

I'll post back my findings when that bug re-appears. If flyspell is causing it, disabling flyspell-mode should get rid of that highlight..

I was wondering about this too.

I'll update this thread with new findings.
