Hi, Paul.

Thanks for this report.  I can reproduce the error.  However, looking at
the code, it "can't possibly happen".  :-(  A few questions:

What exactly do you mean by "opening a different syntax region"?  Do you
mean moving point into it, or scrolling to see it?

Aha!  It's 3991 bytes long.  I'm going to try a binary chop on the
length.  I have a strange feeling the threshold length of the file
(before insertion of "/* ") will be 2048.

OK.  I have a suspicion it could be something like two
before-change-functions being invoked without the after-change-function
which should come between them.

Strangely, though, once this error has happened, it doesn't happen again
in the same Emacs session, even if the buffer is killed and the file
