The regression was apparently fixed. It is easy to repro it in the build I
reported on, from 2013-03-23. But it no longer repros in a build from 3-28.
As for reproducing in 3-23, just put that sexp in *scratch* (Lisp interaction
mode) or any buffer that is `emacs-lisp-mode'.
So you can close this bug (or I will), unless you want to investigate further
for some reason. I don't know what other changes were made when the regression
was introduced. This is a pretty basic mistake, so maybe the changes are worth
Also, as I mentioned, I found no `abort' function etc. in Emacs, and even with
the latest build (abort) still highlights in red. What was fixed is that
(abort-recursive-edit) no longer has the `abort' part in red. But what is this
`abort' function, and why is it highlighted with `font-lock-warning-face'?
