That's because you have a parenthesis in column zero there:

For efficiency reasons, Emacs puts a lot of faith in parentheses that are 
in column zero.  Escape them with a backslash, and the problem will go 
away.  It's in PROBLEMS, btw (which explains how to solve this if you 
don't want to escape the parens).
