OK, thanks!  These two certainly _ought_ to work sensibly together.

Quick question:  does this problem happen with any file.java, or is it
only FileTokenizer.java which crashes?  If the latter, is there a
(java) syntactic error in this file?  [Just for clarity:  even if there
is such an error, Emacs shouldn't be bailing out on it ;-]

I've had a look at the code in font-lock.el, but can't make much of the
information in the dump.  (In particular, I can't see the connection
between the two lines of the dump I've marked with "<=======", which is
the critical bit.  Stefan, what am I missing?)

The file FileTokenizer.java is only 1515 bytes long, isn't it?  Could you
possibly post it here (or even email it to me on address@hidden), so that I
could step through it with a debugger?

Yes, I can certainly empathise with you on that one.  ;-)

One thing to do would be to try with `jit-lock-mode' in place of
`lazy-lock-mode'.  jit-lock is based on the same ideas as lazy-lock.  It
was a reimplementation done after it emerged that there were fundamental
problems with lazy-lock.
