I don't know those problems are.  But here's what I think you should do:

1 - add a syntax-table property (value (0), meaning "whitespace") on
    soft newlines.

2 - set parse-sexp-lookup-property to t when turning on the minor mode.

3 - don't unset parse-sexp-lookup-property because it's too much trouble
    with no known benefit.

4 - if you want to remove the syntax-table property when turning of the
    minor mode off, that's would be OK, although I'm not sure it's worth the
    trouble for now.
