Re:emacs gud does not work with libtool

Emacs 21.3.1 seems to be even more convuluted regarding gdb and libtool 
created programs. Will GNU Emacs ever work with GNU auto-tools created 
programs?

[Riku Saikkonen] Bug#205035: gnus: Cannot find definition of `gnus-article-treat-dumbquotes' in library `gnus-art'

He says this http://bugs.debian.org/205035 is a emacs bug, etc.

From: Riku Saikkonen <rjs <at> cs.hut.fi>
Subject: Bug#205035: gnus: Cannot find definition of `gnus-article-treat-dumbquotes' in library `gnus-art'
(I'm trying to help out in a bug tagged "help".)

Thd problem appears to be due to a missing feature in (GNU) Emacs:
gnus-article-treat-dumbquotes is defined in gnus-art.el using defalias
inside a loop, and Emacs cannot find this definition from the file,
since it's not written out anywhere.

Note that C-h f article-treat-dumbquotes works (though this function
isn't meant to be used directly). I think that the only problem caused
by this bug is the inability to jump to source code directly.

The purpose of the defalias in gnus-art.el seems to be to add a fixed
wrapper around a lot of functions that start with gnus-article-treat-.
Quite useful from a programmer's point of view, but it makes it very
difficult to automatically find the source for a given piece of code.

The only general (but partial) solution I can think of is that Emacs's
C-h f could show that the function was defined using defalias - but

Emacs in CVS work fine with gdb and libtool; the problem was that
Emacs modified the prompt that was entered by the user and what was
sent to the shell, which didn't work well.  Now the command is sent
verbatim.  So the next release should handle it.

dusty manual can tell one what SC MML MC-w Fly ... expand to?

_pages_... scattered miles and miles later, ^L or no ^L.
Why not summarize first?
RMS sent a probable improvement, but not to this list.

bug in read-from-string (Emacs 21.2.2)

Calling read-from-string to read from a string that ends in a 
backslash throws an error "End of file during parsing" but does not 
enter debugger when debug-on-error is t.

e.g.   (read-from-string "a\\")

There is still the issue with finding the file name argument, which won't
do the right thing if "gdb" is replaced by a multi-word command.

That's a feature, see debug-ignored-errors.
