I did some more investigating and discovered that there's a certain  
section in my APT file that causes syntax highlighting to fail. To  
reproduce it, add the following to the top of your APT file:


Each line should be prefixed with a single Tab character. This should  
cause syntax highlighting to mess up.

If you remove the final "---" line or change the amount of whitespace  
in front of each line, the syntax highlighting suddenly works.
