Good morning, David.
This problem still happens with global-font-lock disabled. Also, setting the debug on error to true did not produce anything. I'm not certain if this is an "error", but more of an unintended side effect.
I have narrowed down the issue to the (set-buffer (find-file-noselect file)) line in semanticdb-file-table-object but can't figure out why doing a find-file-noselect (of the #include files) would cause the ECB methods buffer to blank out. When I comment out this find-file-no-select, the problem goes away. It obviously has something to do with loading the #include files and then parsing them. In the same function if I leave in the find-file-noselect but instead comment out the kill-buffer, then the problem happens only once. After that, I see the header file as a buffer in the buffer list(since it was never killed) and I am able to move around the file freely without the methods buffer from going blank. It seems that the initial tags parsing of the include file, by semantic, is doing something.
I know you guys are very busy and I appreciate your time and efforts. Thanks!

Sorry for this late reply. As Klaus, I lack free time for now :-(

To be sure it is not a problem with font-lock, could you globally disable font-lock, and try again your test case? It could be useful too to turn on debug mode (setq debug-on-error t).
Also could you tell us what version of [X]Emacs you are using?
