Yes, it's a known problem in CC Mode, and it's seriously difficult to
fix.  Parsing happens mainly in the backwards direction, and in general,
the #ifdefs in a file form a tree structure.  Which is the line previous
to line 6?  It could be L4, it could be L2.  Typically, such "parallel"
text lines aren't nice and compatible, the way they are in this example.
Indeed, it's possible to construct an example where L6 has two
alternative syntactic contexts, depending on whether A is defined.  In
fact, something like:

#ifdef A
int foo(int a, int b)
#else
int bar(int a, int b)
{
  if (a > b)
#endif
{
  return a+b;
}

would do it.

I don't know if this problem will ever be fixed.

Perhaps the right thing to do is to mark it as "wontfix" since it's unlikely to be possible without a big rewrite.  What do you think?
