The patch I just attached solves the problem without changing the wildcard flag.
 However, if you still want to lessen the wildcard impact, I think we could add
a just-ate-whitespace flag to the lexer instead of carrying it around in every
token.  My patch makes it so we never read more than one token from the lexer at
a time, so the flag would still be current.
