It infloops in python-nav-end-of-statement.  The loop there ends up
one position before EOB, then jumps back to string-start, and so on
and so forth, ad nauseam.

I have no idea what causes this, but I hope Python-mode experts and
perhaps Stefan (due to syntax stuff) will be able to figure this out.
