Thanks for taking the trouble to generate this stack dump; it identifies
the problem completely.

This bug was caused by a previous bug fix which introduced a complete
scan over the entire buffer when it's loaded.  One function,
`c-neutralize-syntax-in-CPP' had been coded very inefficiently.  It was
recoded for speed on 2008-05-24, committed in
.../emacs/lisp/progmodes/cc-mode.el version 1.58.2.12 (Emacs 22 branch)
and version 1.75 (trunk) at savannah.


To get the fixed version, either:
(i) Upgrade to Emacs 22.3; or
(ii) If you're using the Emacs 23 CVS, update your version.
