Are you absolutely sure? This can work with e.g. \mathrm with 'standard'
LaTeX definitions, but not with \mbox which does \leavevmode up-front.
Even with the minimal demo


For example, with TL2013 (final frozen version) I get

    This is pdfTeX, Version 3.1415926-2.5-1.40.14 (TeX Live 2013)
     \write18 enabled.
    entering extended mode
    LaTeX2e <2011/06/27>
    Babel <3.9k> and hyphenation patterns for 78 languages loaded.
    Document Class: article 2007/10/19 v1.4h Standard LaTeX document class
    ! Missing { inserted.
    <to be read again>
    l.3 a$^\mbox{b}
