Sorry, Gildas, I forgot to address this point

First at all, H.G. Wells notwithstanding and as any SF fan would
know (yes, we know since the early 80s that Mr. Hopkins is _not_
a SF fan), a human person turned invisible should become blind,
if only because his eyes would also be transparent to light!

Yes, I know there are fictional ways to go around that problem,
but they do not matter here. Let's admit that Katharina could
see.

Even in this case, she still has not eyes in her neck (I hope),
so if she was looking to the people inside the restroom, she was
probably with her back to the door, and somebody could had
entered and bumped into her without she noticing in time to
avoid them.

But that young woman did look in her direction and didn't
respond, walking right past her hurriedly. Maybe I am reading to
much in it, but after all she easily located the source of the
allegedly disemboidied voice, _she look in her direction_. Why
she did not answer? Whatever the reasons they surely would be
more comprenhensible than a temporary invisivility. If I were
her and found myself in an airport restroom with a clearly
agitated person asking me "Am I invisible or something?", I
certainly would not bother to answer and enter a probable
discussion, I will finish hurriedly and walk away.
