Package: vim
Followup-For: Bug #598197

Getting same behavior here, e.g.: 

    62	        rebuild_vms()   if $opt_req eq "rebuild";
    63	        rename_vms()    if $opt_req eq "rename";
    64	        $sth = $dbh->prepare(qq { UPDATE vox_vms SET status="$opt_req" WHERE id="$result->{id}" });
    65	        $sth->execute;
    66	    } else {
    67	      print "ERR_VM_NOT_FOUND $opt_id\n";
    68	    }

....line 64 up there, "$result->{id}" ... the second bracket is not highlighted 
correctly and all code underneath it loses highlighting.  If I put a space like 
so "$result-> {id}" then all highlighting comes back, but of course then my hashref 
has an empty value. 

To make it easy to see, I posted a ten second video on youtube here:
