    Revert the change to cus-edit.el to what it was before, and do the

Which change? To what it was before, when?

      emacs -q
      M-x customize-face RET font-lock-comment-face RET

    A message shows up in the echo area saying

      Text is read-only: "Attempt to change text outside editable field"

Are you doubting the bug report was accurate? I told you that I just
retested it in that older build (GNU Emacs (i386-mingw-nt5.1.2600)
of 2006-03-20 on W2ONE X server distributor `Microsoft Corp.', version
5.1.2600 configured using `configure --with-gcc
(3.4) --cflags -Id:/g/include').

If there was some time previous to that, where Emacs 22 did not manifest the
bug, and you want to return to that unbugged code, that's fine with me. I
simply reported a bug that existed in a build I was using: there was *no*
feedback to the user at that time. Richard fixed that bug, so presumably he
was able to reproduce it also.
