I've now reproduced after setting

  (setq jit-lock-antiblink-grace nil)

Which turns off the antiblink feature _almost_ entirely.  I've also been
able to reproduce it from the command line via:

    ~/Source/Emacs/emacs-27/src/emacs -Q ~/tmp/taks-file.latex                  
      --eval "(progn                                                            
               (require 'org)                                                   
               (require 'org-table)                                             
               (remove-hook 'post-command-hook                                  
                            'jit-lock--antiblink-post-command t))"

Which _completely_ turns off the antiblink feature.

It doesn't need a window system, -nw is fine to reproduce.

This was with a fresh build of the Emacs 27.1 tag.

It's hard to reproduce sometimes, but iterating the undo/paste rectangle
cycle eventually gets one there.  It has to be done on the very same
file that Tak Kunihiro posted.  Sometimes I mess the file slightly (in
ways that I can't tell) and it doesn't happen again.

Tak Kunihiro, what is in your opinion the deciding character of these
files? I.e. what did you change from the first file (where I couldn't
reproduce) to the second?

I'm quite lost as to why this happens, of course, but it seems it's
always coming from syntax-ppss.  When I evaluate that definition (rather
than compiling), I get more clues:

Debugger entered--Lisp error: (error "Marker does not point anywhere")
  >(#<marker in no buffer> 2919)
  (and old-pos (> old-pos pos))
  (if (and old-pos (> old-pos pos)) (setq old-pos nil))
  (let* ((cell (syntax-ppss--data)) (ppss-last (car cell)) (ppss-cache (cdr 
cell)) (old-ppss (cdr ppss-last)) (old-pos (car pps$

I'll keep looking a bit, but at this point it doesn't seem to have
anything to do with the antiblink feature.  I might be wrong, but I
think that only shows up first in the messages buffer because it's
unlucky enough to be one of the first users of syntax-ppss after a
