This is a bug in the syntax functions in the Emacs core. I've further
minimized the test case to this:

1.  Start Emacs with -q -no-site-file.
2.  Create a new buffer in C mode.
3.  Enter: À RET (
4.  Narrow the buffer to show only the open paren.
5.  Evaluate: (forward-comment -1)

An error "Error in syntax_table logic for to-the-end intervals" is
signalled. I expected the function to not move the point and return
nil, as it does if the buffer isn't narrowed.

Furthermore, I've no idea what the error means and how the caller is
supposed to handle it. Perhaps it should be an internal assertion

The various caches in CC Mode probably avoids the error in these
