bug#4304: Font-lock in cperl-mode is broken

Package: emacs
Version: 23.0.50

In the newest Emacs HEAD source, font-lock in cperl-mode is broken.
Here are the steps to reproduce the problem:

1. Start emacs:

     $ emacs -Q

2. Visit an empty perl file and switch to cperl-mode:

     C-x C-f x.pl
     M-x cperl-mode

3. Type `print' (no any characters follow the character `t'):


   The vertical bar `|' here indicates the cursor.  Now the word
   `print' is highlighted with face `cperl-nonoverridable-face'.

4. Now that the cursor is after the character `t', type SPC to append
   a whitespace character.

     print |

   This time, the word `print' gets unhighlighted.  There is no
   property `face' for that word now:

     ;; Point is in between `print'.
     (text-properties-at (point))
          ==>  (fontified t)

   Appending more whitespace characters will not call the highlight
   back.  However, deleting all of the whitespace characters
   highlights it again.

     print |                         ;; Type DEL
     print|                          ;; `print' gets highlighted again

   And the face property is added back:

     ;; Point is in between `print'.
     (text-properties-at (point))
          ==>  (face cperl-nonoverridable-face font-lock-multiline t fontified t)

The same problem exists for larger Perl programs.  This is only a
simple case.
