Bug in GNU Emacs display code

On DJGPP, with Emacs 21.3, it seems that if I hit C-x C-c 
before it gets to the splash screen, the exit handler code 
is not called, and the display is not reset.  If I do it 
after, it works normally.  This is (emacs-version):

"GNU Emacs 21.3 (i686-pc-msdosdjgpp optimized for Pentium 4)
 of 2005-02-28 on DELL"

(Note that it has the same problem for base i386.)

Samuel Lauber

P.S. I don't know if this is DOS-specific, but it's 
probably not.

Re: Possible GPG bugs or misfeatures

Hi!

Your mail has been forwarded to me.

--verify does not output the message itself.  If you need that, you
should call gpg without --verifty.  The default is to verify or
decrypt the message.

Just did a test and I either can't replicate that or I did not
understand the problem:

  $ gpg --decrypt <x.asc

It _is_ specific to the DJGPP port, and it's actually a feature (that
was there since Emacs 20).  The feature is designed to not clear the
screen if Emacs exits too quickly after the session begins.  That's
because the absolute majority of such quick exits are actually crashes
during startup, and so it is very important to leave the screen
contents intact, because they include vital clues to the reasons of
the crash.

If this feature somehow got in your way, please tell the details;
perhaps we could change it a bit to not interfere with whatever you
were doing.

Re: Cperl-mode does not highlight function names properly

It would be nice for someone to work on installing the latest cperl
mode.  The author of cperl mode does not seem to want to do it,
but I would be glad if he did.

Re: v21.4 compile error

    The same error occurs on an SGI (IRIX 6.5) with the same make version

    EMACS 23.3.1 compiled and runs fine on both platforms

There is no Emacs 23.  Do you mean 21.3?

This is very strange, since the source code of Emacs itself is
identical in those two versions.  The only difference is in movemail,
and building Emacs does not run movemail.

Can you compare the source files, and see if there is any other
unexpected difference between 21.3 and 21.4?

When did you compile Emacs 21.3?  Did you try it recently?

    Attached is the Linux config.log

I think you mean the GNU/Linux config.log.

I can't afford to study the whole log hoping to see a discrepancy.
That would take hours, which I don't have.  However, if you make a log
from 21.3, and send me that log, I can compare them two.  Perhaps I
will see a difference that would provide a starting clue.

Can you please try debugging the crash?
