Hi, Michael and Richard!

Apologies for not replying sooner - Yuletide, and all that.

Yes, I get that too!  It's a strange one.

However, I'd rather not spend time debugging this - it happens in
CC Mode 5.28 (the version which ships with Emacs 21.n), and since then
the font locking for CC Mode has been completely rewritten, now being
incorporated into CC Mode itself.

It sounds like this bug isn't really bothering you too much, anyway.  But
thanks, thanks, and thanks for taking the trouble to report it!

The current version of CC Mode is now 5.31.1:  It can be downloaded from
<http://cc-mode.sourceforge.net/release.php>.  This little bug with the
font locking _doesn't_ happen any more in this version.
