There's no such problem with GNU Emacs 23. Others repeatedly reported
problems with XEmacs, so I just tried it, and I can confirm it.

The reason is that font-lock of XEmacs does not seem to provide a way to
extend the region that's currently being fontified. I think we could
kludge that in manually. Perhaps I'll do it when I'll find the time.
