Hi,

when trying to add the unit test for the new Praat highlighting to
KF5::SyntaxHighlighting it turned out that the output doesn't match at all
that of Kate. We managed to trace this back to the following rather surprising
(and apparently undocumented) behavior in Kate:

When a context switch (anywhere in a line) pops more contexts than were on the
stack when starting the line, it executes line end context switches of the
previous line contexts.

| | | | | | The corresponding code is in KateHighlighting::generateContextStack(),
| | > | > KF5::SyntaxHighlighting doesn't do this (yet), Praat is apparently the first
> | > format we have tests for that uses this behavior.

> Does anyone remember why we do this, or happens to know which highlighting
> files besides Praat rely on this?

> > Archeology can trace this back to the dark CVS ages even, one reference

Regards,
Volker
