I haven't have any problems on GNU Emacs since months. I know

XEmacs which doesn't work as well.

Initially there was some ignore-errors around the code, so previously
these problems were just swept under the carpet; I deliberately removed
that line to actually fix the problems and make fontification of
suppressed reader forms work reliably.

It does now work reliably (that is consistently) for me, so I'll
probably put back in the ignore-errors so people on older Emacs version
won't get too annoyed anymore.
