I think I understand what's happening, now.

c-looking-at-or-maybe-in-bracelist attempts to go back over the innards
of a brace list to the enclosing "{".  At L+122, in new handling for a
comma, I rather rashly inserted a `c-go-up-list-backward' to test whether
the comma is inside a brace.  This was in a loop, once for each sexp.

In your sample file there is, at L10,653 a construct at top level with
_lots_ of commas.  My loop is trying to go to the non-existent containing
brace for each of these commas, so ends up scanning to BOB for each of
them.  This entire activity will be being done several times.

I timed a single `c-go-up-list-backward' from one of these commas at
0.033 seconds.  30 of these take about a second, and my machine is
anything but slow.

So, I just need to work out a way of fixing this, which may take some
while (sorry).

Thanks again for reporting the bug.
