The cause of this is a (search-forward-regexp <regexp> limit t) in a loop, where
the code fails to check (< (point) limit) at the start.  In textprop.c in
master, it so happens that the last successful iteration of the loop
leaves point beyond limit.  So we get the exception.

This is easy to correct, but first I'm going to check for all the other
places where the same mistake occurs.  Expect a patch soon!
