I'm not sure that the current behaviour is a bug.

(let (overlay)
  (insert "abc")
  (setq overlay (make-overlay (- (point) 3) (point)))
  (overlay-put overlay 'after-string "hello")
  (sit-for 2)
  (delete-overlay overlay))

In this case, it seems that the current behaviour is correct
(i.e. the cursor is shown after "hello").
