I've tried it again, but instead of resetting my computer's clock, I
changed the diary-lib.el source:

(defun diary-view-entries (&optional arg)
  "Prepare and display a buffer with diary entries.
Searches the file named in `diary-file' for entries that
match ARG days starting with the date indicated by the cursor position
in the displayed three-month calendar."
  (interactive "p")
;;   (diary-list-entries (calendar-cursor-to-date t) arg))
  (diary-list-entries '(5 4 2006) arg)) ; Thursday, May 4, 2006

And sure enough, when I use this version of diary-view-entries with my
original recipe, I get the fontification problem I described.  Same
thing if the last line instead reads "... '(5 5 2006) ..." (Friday).
But I didn't stop there: I tried other dates falling on a Thursday or
Friday, also in other months and years -- and failed to get the
fontification problem with all of them except '(5 4 2006) and '(5 5
2006)!  With those two dates, and apparently those alone, I can
replicate the fontification problem at will.  I have no idea what's
going on here, nor why you don't see what I do.
