Description

Hello,

Lately (in about last month), I have been seeing an odd highlighting issue most likely related to verilog-mode. It can be best described with the help of the below gifv animation:

I have posted the same issue on the emacs-devel mailing too: https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/emacs-devel/2016-09/msg00590.html

I cannot tell if the issue is with:

  • emacs 25.x
  • verilog-mode
  • Use of something new in the verilog code that is false-triggering that highlight.. it looks like the highlight for verilog-highlight-includes. But I need to yet confirm that.. I am waiting for that exact highlighting bug to get triggered (as it seems to happen randomly).

A possibly related issue ( https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/emacs-devel/2016-09/msg00597.html ) reported in the same thread is that the valid verilog-highlight-includes highlights are duplicating on the same region multiple times with each M-x revert-buffer.

Please refer to the above link for more info.
