The OP claims temporary insanity...

(I somehow got under the impression that there were a few more bits
there...)

[twurgler <at> goodyear.com: Re: emacs 21.2 odd behavior in shell window]


Ok, I am back to the problem again.

HP-UX 11.0 compiled with cc.

Specifically,

I am in a shell window.  BTW, my default shell is csh, terminal type is "dumb".
I try to run a fortran program or a sh script, which prompt for a filename.
At the prompt for the filename, I decide that I want to kill it and do something
else.  So in all previous versions of emacs, I would hit ^C^C, which was bound
to comint-interupt-subjob and the program was aborted.

Now when I hit ^C^C in emacs 21.2, I get nothing.
I then hit ^H^C ^C^C and it says it is bound to comint-interupt-subjob.
I then type esc-: (comint-interupt-subjob) and the program is sucessfully
aborted.

Please try redefining comint-interupt-subjob to run interpreted and
put (debug) into it at the beginning.  Then try stepping through it
and see what it does.

As another datapoint, I have observed a different but perhaps related
problem with Emacs (both 21.2 and 20.7) under KDE (2.2.2): when I
click on a menu bar label in Emacs and then press `Ctrl-TAB' (the
KDE keyboard shortcut to change the virtual desktop/workspace) while
the Emacs menu is displayed, the keyboard locks up.  I haven't been
able to replicate this behavior with other apps in KDE (they simply
block switching of the desktop, as described above).  On the other
hand, it seems similar to a known KDE bug and has a similar
workaround, i.e., clicking on the border of an active window (see
e.g. bugs.kde.org/db/29/29926.html).

other possible syntax-errors in el-files

Hello Richard Stallman, hello dear developers, 

I have read that there is a newer Emacs-Version 21.2 and have compared similar 
source-syntax.
I found the following possible errors (extract by FIND ""):

IDLgrTesselator against IDLgrTessellator :
("Init"  fun "IDLgrTessellator"  (system) "Result = Obj -> [%s::]%s( ) 
('IDLgrTesselator')" nil)
("Cleanup" pro "IDLgrTessellator"  (system) "Obj -> [%s::]%s" nil)

Zapf-Chancery-MediumItalic against ZapfChancery-MediumItalic 
(Zapf-Chancery-MediumItalic     (fonts (normal . "Zapf-Chancery-MediumItalic"))
["ZapfChancery-MediumItalic" (insert "/ZapfChancery-MediumItalic ") t]

Maybe that more possible Errors You can find in the appendend Files
Errlis1.txt,Errlis2.txt .
For a first Test You can use a line-FIND from evening to morning like
Readme and searchal.bat (Edit the REMs You will not use).

Have a good work !

Does it help to rename the directory where you have WinCVS installed so that
the "WinCvs 1.2" part is changed to something without an embedded blank?

Also, what do you use for shell on that system?  Any non-default settings of
shell-related variables?

Send Bug Report unable to send bug report

In GNU Emacs 20.7.1 (sparc-sun-solaris2.8, X toolkit)
 of Tue Jan 16 2001 on sunray8.era-a.ericsson.se
configured using `configure  --prefix=/usr/bag/emacs/20.7
--datadir=/usr/bag/emacs/share'

My system recently switched to Solaris 2.8.
This had the effect that mail mode is no longer able to find the
sendmail program, which it expects to find at /usr/sbin/
instead of eg /usr/lib/ where I can see a copy.

A side effect of this is of course that the "Send Bug Report" command
is broken.

Has my unix system been tweaked in a non-standard way or is this an
emacs problem? Besides including above path in my path, is there
anything simpler I could do?
