In c-mode if you type the following comment with M-x show-paren-mode
activated, the closing parenthesis is highlighted correctly:

// Lorem ipsum (dolor sit amet)

However, if the ' character appears inside the parenthesis, then
show-paren-mode won't match them.

For example, when typing the following comment, show-paren-mode highlights
the closing parenthesis using show-paren-mismatch:

// Comments are good (aren't they?)


I tried to make an ERT test that would check if the parenthesis was
highlighted correctly, but I couldn't get the overlay that
show-paren-mode uses.

However I found out that forward-sexp also doesn't work when the '
character appears between parenthesis, which makes me think the problem
may be somewhere in the syntax-table used by c-mode.

Here's the ERT test:

(ert-deftest cc-mode-should-forward-sexp-with-quotes-inside ()
  "Check if `forward-sexp' works in c-mode when the cursor is
inside a comment and there's a ' character inside the
parenthesis"
  (with-temp-buffer
    (c-mode)
    (insert "// Comments are good (aren't they?)")
    (goto-char (point-min))
    (search-forward "(")
    (backward-char 1)
    (forward-sexp)
    (ert-should (= (point) 36))))


Also, the reason I think that the problem only affects c-mode and modes that
derive from it is because this problem doesn't show up in
emacs-lisp-mode or lisp-mode.


Here's how to see the problem when starting emacs with the -Q flag:

1. Create the temporary buffer "temp-buffer" with C-x b temp-buffer RET
2. Activate c-mode with M-x c-mode
3. Activate show-paren-mode with M-x show-paren-mode
4. Write "// Comments are good (aren't they?)"
5. When typing the closing parenthesis, notice that it's highlighted
with the face show-paren-mismatch


Another test that can be used that doesn't use show-paren-mode but still
shows wrong behaviour is the following:

1. Create the temporary buffer as before
2. Activate c-mode as before
2. Write "// Comments are good (aren't they?)"
3. When typing the closing parenthesis, notice that the minibuffer shows
the message "No matching parenthesis found".
