Try to put the following string into a buffer in C++-mode:

more bla"

Now try to edit the last line. The hightlightning suddently change.  The
part of the buffer after the string will suffer from appearantly random
hightlighting as string - sometime the code is hightlighted correctly
and suddently it will be hightlighted as string and vice versa (I can't
find the pattern in how it behaves after the string. It's just weird).

It's the paranthese in the start of a line that causes the problem
(delete it = no problems). You have probably copy-pasted some Lisp
highlighting code without looking through it... well, what do I know ;)

M-x version returns
GNU Emacs 21.3.1 (i386-pc-linux-gnu, X toolkit) of 2003-10-31 on raven,

syntax highlighting
