That's because of syntax-begin-function, which in Lisp buffers assumes
than an open-paren in column 0 is necessarily outside of anything
(parens, comments, strings, ...).  And then syntax-ppss sometimes uses
this assumption and sometimes not, depending on the distance of the
previous call to syntax-ppss and the nearest beginning of defun (aka
open-paren in column 0).

I just installed a change to leave syntax-begin-function nil in
Lisp buffers.  The performance impact should be negligible.
