Sorry, I did not find an easy test case.  I tried to simplify the
essence of what my code does, but the effect didn't occur.  Seems that
lots of different things must come together to provoke this symptom.
Given the fact that my code was really broken, I don't think it's worth
the time to follow this up.  It would cost me many hours to compile some
test code for emacs -Q.  Or do you think it would be worth it?  If you
think it could be very important, I would do it, but it would be very
time intensive.  My code works well now with `cache-long-scans' t after
the right fixes, btw.
