This bug exists even if the overlay is wrapped around a string, and
affects both before-string and after-string.  Personally I think the
behavior should depend on the insertion-type of the overlay begin/end
markers, so that the cursor is displayed where any text would be
inserted.  This would result in the most natural behavior from the
user's point of view, I think.

Anyway, the fix is not trivial since some crucial information isn't
preserved during the transformation into glyphs during redisplay.

Also, the last time I opined that this should be fixed, Eli objected,
saying that it would break his planned bi-directional input; however he
never gave any actual example of how, so I'm not sure I believe this.
