While not easy, it should be theoretically possible to reproduce the
problem with (setq font-lock-support-mode nil) which would make it much
easier to debug.  If the problem doesn't appear right when enabling
font-lock, then it needs to be triggered by cutting and re-inserting
a chunk of text (and you need to find a chunk that triggers the problem).
