Actually, the right solution is described in this NEWS entry:

  ** The new implementation of Subword mode affects word movement everywhere.
  When Subword mode is turned on, 'forward-word', 'backward-word', and
  everything that uses them will move by sub-words, effectively
  overriding the buffer's syntax table.  Lisp programs that shouldn't be
  affected by Subword mode should call the new functions
  'forward-word-strictly' and 'backward-word-strictly' instead.

At the time I wrote this NEWS entry, I reviewed all the callers of
forward/backward-word and changed those which I thought needed that; I
guess I missed studly.el at that time.  Sorry about that.
