bug#1501: Emacs 22 loses undo buffer

No, I didn't enable any other major or minor modes before testing.  I
also ran emacs with -q --no-site-file.

Your theory about it being related to font-lock-mode appears to be
correct, however!  I started emacs, loaded the header file, disabled
font-lock-mode, and ran my test again and it behaved as expected
(i.e., it retained all of my undo records).  Is font-lock-mode using
up more records (or more record space) than expected?  I wonder if
it's also Windows-specific in some way?
