Just typing, similarly to the testcase. When you quickly type an
opening quote (") or inline comment starter (/*) and then instantly
continue typing whatever is going to be inside, this error happens.
Far from always, but often enough to be annoying.

I have a different suspicion that sometimes cc-mode relies on data
found in font-lock only and that data may or may not be present (or up
to date) depending on how fast lazy font-locking happens. But of
course you know the code better to decide if that is possible at all.
