I don't have this problem.

I made a change to CC Mode on 2007-04-09 to make C-x n d
(`narrow-to-defun') and friends do the right thing.  This involved
changing some macros; all users of the macros therefore needed

Here, again, is the recipe for recompiling the CC Mode sources: 

(i) M-x byte-compile-file cc-defs.el.  M-x load-file /path/cc-defs.elc
(ii) M-x byte-compile-file cc-langs.el.  M-x load-file /path/cc-langs.elc
(iii) M-x byte-compile-file cc-engine.el.  M-x load-file ../cc-engine.elc
(iv) M-x byte-compile-file cc-mode.el.  M-x load-file ../cc-mode.elc

(v) compile and load cc-{awk,cmds}.el (no dependence on the other four

Either do that, or recompile the entire lot off cc-*.el.  If that
doesn't fix things, please say so.
