Gao is trying to help, but misunderstood your message.  I think I
understand: by the time the string is printed in the buffer, the text
properties have already been rendered as text.  I'll remove string
properties when I get strings into the registry, and for search

The gnus-registry actually gets the strings from the Gnus internal
data for an article, so it's not a single point where I can change the
code unfortunately.  I'll have to go through the library to make sure
properties are removed everywhere.

I'll put the fix into gnus-registry.el in the Gnus tree, and it will
make its way into the Emacs tree from there (I'll make sure it's
backported to Gnus 5.10).

Thanks for all your help, Handa-san :)
