This happens to me all the time when working on large projects. It seems
that the code model can't catch up when there are already parsing jobs in
the background and then I modify some file that's not yet reparsed, and
thus the previous version of the highlight data is used.

By large project I mean something like kdevelop itself, or the tensorflow
source code, which takes about half an hour to finish initial parsing.
