Hi, Eli.

I've done a binary chop on this, and the following revision made this bug
apparent:

revno: 106729
committer: Alan Mackenzie <address@hidden>
branch nick: trunk
timestamp: Sat 2011-12-24 19:32:31 +0000
message:
  Introduce a mechanism to widen the region used in context font locking.
  Use this to protect declarations from losing their contexts.

I'll see what I can work out from this.  At least it's one of mine.  ;-)
