Thank you!  I've committed that patch.

Are you sure you mean textprop.c?  With jit-lock-stealth-mode enabled, I
couldn't get the error on textprop.c.  That file only has seven CPP
constructs, all right near the start of the buffer, and none of them
seem to have the closing brace/bracket/parenthesis in the right place to
trigger the error.

Anyway, it's probably not that important.  There was definitely a bug in
CC Mode at that place in c-beginning-of-statement-1, and there was
definitely a bug in CC Mode which threw an exception in your stealthy
fontification.  The patch appears to have fixed both.

I'll close bug #28850 (again), seeing as how Basil C. has confirmed that
"his" bug is fixed, too.
