bug#1501: Emacs 22 loses undo buffer

I'm getting the same problem in Emacs 22.2.1 in Ubuntu. Steps to reproduce.

1. start emacs without any resource file (.emacs or any other rc file)  <--- this is avoid if there is some problem with user init file.
2. open file called 'test.c'
3. copy content of "http://www.rfc-editor.org/rfc/rfc2547.txt" into test.c and save it.
4. do  C-k till section "3.1 Virtual Sites" in the current buffer.
5. Trying continuous C-/, emacs is **not** getting into beginning of the buffer. I get only few lines as undo. Just 5 lines i can do undo. Not more than that.

Without font-lock-mode (after disabling font-lock-mode), i tried same sequence, i can get some more lines in undo but not the whole buffer. So, as you pointed out font-lock-mode has some impact with undo.

Increased undo-limit,undo-strong-limit,undo-outer-limit to 100,000,000. I repeated the same steps from 1, 5. This time, I'm able to do full undo.. I dont mind setting this value in my .emacs because memory is not a problem for me. But, would this cause any other problem like performance or buffer loss ?.
