    Fix display of minibuffer prompt in ido.el · 027da652

    * lisp/minibuffer.el (minibuffer--message-overlay-pos): New
    function.
    (set-minibuffer-message): Use it to determine where to show the
    overlay with the temporary message.
    * lisp/ido.el (ido-exhibit): Revert "Render Ido suggestions using
    an overlay"; this restores the original code which inserted the
    match-status information into the minibuffer, instead of
    displaying it in an overlay with an after-string.  Put the special
    'minibuffer-message' text property at the beginning of the
    inserted text.  (Bug#39379)
    
    * etc/NEWS:
    * doc/lispref/display.texi (Displaying Messages):
    * doc/lispref/text.texi (Special Properties): Document the
    'minibuffer-message' text property and its effect.
