There was an urban myth for quite some time that it was not possible to fix this problem given the way that Emacs does syntax highlighting.

However, the new "python.el" that comes with CVS emacs (as opposed to the "python-mode.el" which comes with XEmacs and is distributed by python.org) does not have this problem.  However, it has a few other issues, so it's a "six of one, half dozen of the other" sort of problem.  I think that the new "python.el" is better, but no effort seems to have yet been made to integrate the two efforts.
