This seems to be because of the way ``beginning-of-defun'' works. It's
looking for a "(" at the start of a line. If you want to force it to
look for "(defun" at the beginning of a line, you could do this:

(setq beginning-of-defun-function (lambda nil 
                                    (re-search-backward "^(defun")))
