When I try to use iedit in a buffer with flymake errors, flymake's overlay overrules iedit's match highlighting because it has a higher priority. I made the following change to fix it:

200 is a higher priority than highlight-current-line (60) and flymake (100) use, but lower than show-paren (1000) and auto-complete (9999) do.

(Excuse the svn diff format.)


I have integrated the change to the master branch.
