Literate Haskell in Vim - a bug and a workaround (?)

 Hi, I've been recently playing with literate haskell in latex mode in Vim. The versions are: Vim - 6.4.6 tex.vim - 30 lhaskell.vim - 1.01 I encountered a bug. If you put \section (or \subsection or \chapter or other similar command), haskell syntax highlighting is lost from this command onwards. I tried some googling and searching this list's archives but found nothing. After going through tex.vim and reading vim docs I found out, that adding 'containedin tex.*Zone' to the following line: syntax region lhsHaskellBeginEndBlock start="^\\begin{code}\s*$" matchgroup=NONE end="\%(^\\end{code}.*$\)\@=" contains=@haskellTop,@beginCode appears to solve the problem. Apparently the bug is caused by texSectionZone (and other zones) syntax region which extends from \section command until another \section command. Since lhsHaskellBeginEndBlock region was not allowed inside texSectionZone, it was not recognised. Adding containedin clause addresses this problem letting vim to recognise \begin{code} as beginning of the Haskell file part. Such change however breaks tex lexical checks. More specifically - texMatcher from tex.vim is unable to match braces around section titles (chapter, subsection, etc.). I tried tampering with lhaskell.vim for some time but found no way to fix it. (Which is not surprising, given the fact that I am far from being vim expert. In fact I know almost nothing about vim programming.) Therefore the patch I attach simply turns lexical checks off setting g:tex_no_error variable. The variable is then unset immediately after loading tex.vim in order not to affect other buffers where it can work correctly. I attach the patch with those two changes. It is diff -u output. Any comments are welcome. I would especially be happy to learn how to fix texMatcher issue without turning it off.
