Original report:

Outline mode seems to have trouble with continuation lines.

Do C-h n.

C-c C-t

Now the line:

** You can build Emacs with Gtk+ widgets by specifying `--with-x-toolkit=gtk'...

has become a continuation line.  If it is not in your setup, make it
one, by reducing the width.

C-n just gets stuck at the end of that line.  (But C-f works)
Increasing the width, so that it no longer is a continuation line
completely makes the problem go away.

Correction to original report:  

I failed to notice that just having a continuation line
was not sufficient to produce the problem.  (Sorry about that, I
should have thought about that possibility and checked it out.)

The problem apparently only occurs if the sequence ...\n is split over
the continuation line.  If you adjust the size of the screen so that
one gets:


then the problem should occur (and C-n keeps cycling between lines 17
and 20.)  Just start at the beginning of the buffer and do C-n until
you get stuck.
