This has been the case for some while, as you have said.

The offending function is probably c-font-lock-enclosing-decls, a
relatively new function.  c-f-l-e-decls solves the former problem of
misfontification when a jit-lock chunk started within (mainly) a
struct/enum/union/class/... and lacked the context to fontify correctly.
An example of this happening was the first enum construct in
.../emacs/src/gnutls.h.

Could you possibly check this is the case in your file.c++ using elp.
Here's a quick recipe in case you haven't used it before:
[ M-x elp-instrument-package <ret> c- <ret>.
  Scroll with C-v, either once or an arbitrary number of times.
  M-x elp-results.]

The cost of this correct fontification is the "slight" sluggishness being
seen here.  It is likely possible to optimise this function somewhat,
though probably it's now too late for Emacs 24.1.
