Ok, I tried this. But then it was not reproducible... I tried several
things, also to enable the watchpoint if another variable set in
semanticdb-save-all-db-idle() etc. Typing hours and watching hours at debug
outputs... nothing happend.

Then I tried another thing, just M-x do-auto-save. And it happened again.
With debugging on I have to wait long minutes to see nothing happens in
emacs but tons of debug output from gdb.

Last try was to work with to watchpoints trying to trigger on writing 753 to
pt which should enable the watch to enable all writing. But worked not so
good. I also had problems with xbacktrace on eeePC I tried this morning,
because on my Core-2 machine it was not reproducible any more after
yesterday evening. And therefore defined an xbacktrace2 which just goes back
15 entries in backtrace.

I am watching pt in intervals.c having typed <ret> at the end of
set_point() ((point) = 49504), M-x do-auto-save, and then wating...

What is seen is several calls to semantic-idle-scheduler-function, which is
changing position of point, every time going back to 49504.

I stopped the debugger and continued after this a hile but it was not going
back to 49504.

With next call from timer-event-handler it switches between 753 and 1 and
147 again:

For me the suspect function is semantic-c-lexer, which is defined via macro
define-lex:

,----
| (defmacro define-lex (name doc &rest analyzers)
|   "Create a new lexical analyzer with NAME.
| ...
|   `(defun ,name  (start end &optional depth length)
|      ,(concat doc "\nSee `semantic-lex' for more information.")
|      ;; Make sure the state of block parsing starts over.
|      (setq semantic-lex-block-streams nil)
|      ;; Allow specialty reset items.
|      (run-hook-with-args 'semantic-lex-reset-functions start end)
|      ;; Lexing state.
|      (let* (;(starttime (current-time))
|           (starting-position (point))
| ...
|        (with-syntax-table semantic-lex-syntax-table
|          (goto-char start)
|          (while (and (< (point) end)
|                      (or (not length)
|                        (<= (length semantic-lex-token-stream) length)))
|            (semantic-lex-one-token ,analyzers)
|          (when (eq semantic-lex-end-point tmp-start)
|            (error ,(format "%s: endless loop at %%d, after %%S" name)
|                     tmp-start (car semantic-lex-token-stream)))
|          (setq tmp-start semantic-lex-end-point)
|            (goto-char semantic-lex-end-point)
|          ;;(when (> (semantic-elapsed-time starttime (current-time))
|          ;;       semantic-lex-timeout)
|          ;;  (error "Timeout during lex at char %d" (point)))
| >>>>     (semantic-throw-on-input 'lex)
|          (semantic-lex-debug-break (car semantic-lex-token-stream))
|          ))
| ...
|        ;; Return to where we started.
|        ;; Do not wrap in protective stuff so that if there is an error
|        ;; thrown, the user knows where.
|        (goto-char starting-position)
|        ;; Return the token stream
|        (nreverse semantic-lex-token-stream))))
`----

It is moving point, only wrapping a goto-char around it and it is throwing a
signal under specific circumstances.

If I see it right, then semantic-c-lexer will be called under save-excursion
from semantic-idle-core-handler whenn called via timer-event-handler:

,----
| "semantic-idle-core-handler" (0xffffcb50)
| "semantic-idle-scheduler-function" (0xffffce08)
| "apply" (0xffffce00)
| "timer-event-handler" (0xffffcfc8)
`----

but when called from semanticdb-save-all-db-idle (I think) it will be called
from semanticdb-save-db and

,----
|     (semantic-exit-on-input 'semanticdb-idle-save
|       (mapc (lambda (db)
|             (semantic-throw-on-input 'semanticdb-idle-save)
|             (semanticdb-save-db db t))
|           semanticdb-database-list))
`----

therefore from within semantic-exit-on-input, which is a catch. And with my
other observations I saw the catch exiting with moved point.

This seems to explains, why a save-excursion around this works for me.

I also tried a save-excursion around semantic-c-lexer and this seems to work
too.

So after all this: my opinion is that semantic-c-lexer is the problem.

@Eli: I can send you the complete log if you need it.

With kind regards,
Stefan
