Hi Andreas, Emacs does not have a haskell-mode, so this bug is 
difficult to reproduce. It may be more appropriate to report this to 
the haskell-mode maintainers for triage. They can figure out if it is 
a problem that should be fixed in haskell-mode itself, or a problem 
with Emacs. Alternatively, can you provide a series of clear 
instructions to reproduce the problem in a fresh Emacs started without 
your customizations? For example, begin by running "emacs -Q" and go 
from there. Your attached .png presents a buffer called 
*parse-partial-sexp-output*, but it is not clear how this was 
generated. Thanks
Hi Matt,

checked that with help of the haskell-mode folks already.
Thanks.  For reference, this is what you have said on the github bug:

Seems a bug of

As it's nice at current pretest Emacs, concluded a bug in trunk.
Here a shortened recipe. Put code below in a buffer:

M-x haskell-mode RET
Note that haskell-mode is not part of Emacs.  Ideally, your steps to
reproduce that begin with running "emacs -Q".  Emacs maintainers that
might not also be Haskell hackers will appreciate it.  :)

Also, can you describe the visible symptom that caused you to begin
looking at syntax-ppss and parse-partial-sexp?  That description may
help me or others spot similarities with other reported bugs.

(I must say that I am not an Emacs expert, and I do not usually reply to
Emacs bugs.  I looked at a few bugs last night as a way to help
maintainers triage the "easy" bugs.  It does not look like this bug is
This seems similar to #24767.

There is said:

Here in "master" the syntax-highlighting is correct. So the cases might be related, but not the same.

BTW here is the recipe with a new setup.

{- asdfasd -}
-- (parse-partial-sexp (point-min) (point))
-- ==> (1 1 nil nil t nil 0 nil 15 (1) nil)

absolut n | n >= 0 = n
          | otherwise = -n
