I have tried once more with this version, but failed to reproduce it.  If 
it is a timing problem than it would be hard anyway.  How many cores do 
you have?  Does the problem persist, say in Isabelle/8fbcbcf4380e from 

The quote-mismatch thing can also cause some visual confusion, because the 
static tokenizer of jEdit displays defines boundaries differently than the 
semantic markup by the prover.

What is also special about List.thy is its sheer size.  So any of the 
concurrent editing tasks might take longer than otherwise, and make it 
easier to get into a problem than usual.

Anyway, I am on travel in the next 3 weeks ...
