I guess I didn't express myself sufficiently clearly:

   * The syntax.sty that's on CTAN works fine.

   * The syntax.sty that ships with TeX Live 20051102 is buggy.

   * Both versions have the same release date but the TeX Live version
     has a later version number.

When I wrote, "I have no idea where this version of syntax.sty comes
from" I meant, "because it's not the one from CTAN".
