    I ran into the same issue. Here my minimal example:

    $ echo "+ foo;" | pygmentize -l objectivec
    *** Error while highlighting:
    TypeError: expected string or buffer
       (file "/Library/Python/2.6/site-packages/Pygments-1.4dev_20111005-py2.6.egg/pygments/lexer.py", line 497, in get_tokens_unprocessed)

    It seems, that methods with NO stated arguments will fail.

    I also did some bisecting and nailed it to changes in cf606e81df8a and #638 .
