Some of that makes sense.  It's just showing your a list of functions
which had been called by other fuctions when it bailed out.  It was
obviously "find"ing your .cpp file, but that function then seems to be
interpreting some "compiled" elisp, probably to process the C++ syntax
with colors or whatever, and choked on some syntax it was not (due to
its own bug?) not able to handle so it signaled an error with the
error msg above in quotes.  Now that I think of it, I once had a
similar error where something couldn't handle my HTML.  I never
determined what was wrong, but changing the HTML "fixed" the problem.
You could try messing with your .cpp file, or try to find a better fix
by posting the "trace" to one of the emacs newsgroups.  I'm not sure,
but you might get a better trace (with several other function calls
replacing the "byte-code" thing, if you try to get your emacs to use
/usr/local/lib/xemacs-21.4.14/lisp/files.el rather than
/usr/local/lib/xemacs-21.4.14/lisp/files.elc eg, by renaming the
latter temporarily to files.elc.xxx.  Assuming that you're trying to
track down the .el file (called indirectly from find-file-noselect)
which analyzes the C++ code.

I give up.
