It's not coming from init.el. It is coming from ess-roxy.el. For
example, if you edit ess-roxy.el to just contain (provide 'ess-roxy)
then the warning goes away (but you will get a new error that is pretty
harmless; boy is that progress or what?). Here is
the function which shows where the error condition comes from...
(defun font-lock-pre-idle-hook ()
(if (> (hash-table-count font-lock-pending-buffer-table) 0)
(error (warn "Error caught in `font-lock-pre-idle-hook': %s"
; called when any modification is made to buffer text. This function
; remembers the changed ranges until the next redisplay, at which point
; the extents are merged and pruned, and the resulting ranges fontified.
; This function could easily be adapted to other after-change-functions.
I have never even heard of this function before so something must be
going wrong at a fairly early level in the fontlocking process.
