Philipp, any chance of you trying out python mode with this patch but
Unfortunately the problem wasn't easily reproducible back then. The problem would occur from time to time, but I never found a way to trigger it reproducibly. Therefore the unit test I've added in the commit artificially generates the symptom. The root cause is still unknown; while syntax-ppss and narrowing might be a potential root cause (the fontification code uses both), it might also be something else.
