Please use the latest CVS code as a base, whenever possible.
As for other solutions to your problem:
1 - use font-lock-multiline (but this is a bit expensive)
2 - use jit-lock-defer-multiline (see the CVS' etc/NEWS file)

Solution 2 was written specifically for this kind of case.

PS: Your changelog entries don't look right.  They should look like

    * filename (functionname, varname, othername): blabla.
    (morefunctionchanged): blabli.
