OK, thanks! These two certainly _ought_ to work sensibly together.
That's an internal coding error, probably in CC Mode. Try setting
`debug-on-error' (M-: (setq debug-on-error t)), then visit the file again.
That should give a stack dump.
Here's a stack dump:

Quick question: does this problem happen with any file.java, or is it
only FileTokenizer.java which crashes? If the latter, is there a
(java) syntactic error in this file? [Just for clarity: even if there
is such an error, Emacs shouldn't be bailing out on it ;-]
I've had a look at the code in font-lock.el, but can't make much of the
information in the dump. (In particular, I can't see the connection
between the two lines of the dump I've marked with "<=======", which is
the critical bit. Stefan, what am I missing?)
The file FileTokenizer.java is only 1515 bytes long, isn't it? Could you
possibly post it here (or even email it to me on address@hidden), so that I
could step through it with a debugger?
So, what should I do? Work around this error until the next version
comes out? I'd rather do that than build from the newest cvs source
Yes, I can certainly empathise with you on that one. ;-)
One thing to do would be to try with `jit-lock-mode' in place of
`lazy-lock-mode'. jit-lock is based on the same ideas as lazy-lock. It
was a reimplementation done after it emerged that there were fundamental
problems with lazy-lock.
