The patch below appears to fix the problem for me.  I've installed it in
the emacs-23 branch.

The problem was that current-column uses a cache to try and speed up
some cases, and the cache was not flushed when exiting
a save-restriction.  The workaround you used works because `set-buffer'
flushes the cache and `format' uses set-buffer internally.
