As mentioned above, this is the same issue as M-x grep.  I hope we can
fix it for Emacs-24 (by making compile.el use syntax-propertize-function
rather than font-lock), but for Emacs-23 the only solution I can offer
is to configure the relevant faces so they look the same as default.

What I'm doing manually is cursing a bit, then switching buffers and manually typing (global-font-lock-mode 0) to make these popups visible. I wonder if we couldn't automate that process? (Excepting, perhaps the cursing.)

Would it make sense to push the current value of global-font-lock-mode, run the rest of what these guys do, then restore the value of global-font-lock-mode afterwards? That is, wrap them in a sort of context manager?

The end result for me would be a legible buffer and for everyone else would be essentially the same thing they have now.
