Bug#846264: vim: yacc/bison highlighting interprets semicolon in quotes as end of rule

Package: vim
Version: 2:8.0.0049-1
Severity: minor


with the Bison input

%token SEMICOLON ";"

	"do" statement "while" "(" expression_in ")" ";" |
	"while" "(" expression_in ")" statement |

the semicolon terminal referenced by the rule through its alternate
representation is treated as terminating the rule, and syntax
highlighting shows the rest of the rule in grey. Similar concerns apply
to "{", "}" and "|" -- these should be ignored when quoted.
