I think this would be useful.  Personally, I use the `<f1> A' prefix
for...

a	apropos
c	apropos-command
d	apropos-documentation
f	apropos-command (with apropos-do-all = t)
i	info-apropos
v	apropos-variable
V	apropos-value

Bye, Reiner.

Crash on exit in Sparc Solaris 10


Using 21.4 or 21.3 on a patched Solaris 10 machine, with gcc-3.3.2.

On exit via C-xC-c I get:

Other possible symptoms:

On make, I get:

delete-char vs "mouse-region" and "transient-mark-region"

This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
not to your local site managers!
Please write in English if possible, because the Emacs maintainers
usually do not have translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the emacs-pretest-bug <at> gnu.org mailing list.

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

1. $ emacs -q

2. Create two lines of text:

line1
line2

3. Mark the first one using the mouse and press C-d (delete-char). The
   marked region will be deleted.

4. Mark the second line using transient mark mode (C-SPC C-CPC C-e)
   and press C-d. The region will not be deleted.

Is it just me or would others also like to have both these marked
regions behave in the same way?

If the decision is to delete the region in both cases, may I suggest
that DEL (<backspace>) also deletes marked text?

Mule-UCS in 21.3 and newer

Versions: 21.3, 21.4a

Mule-UCS, as referenced by `etc/MORE.STUFF', will not work with emacs
21.3 or 21.4a.  Worked only after patching as reproduced below, and
did not observe critical bugs in it yet.  Wrote to <mule <at> m17n.org>
about that on 2005-08-31, and on 2005-09-02 posted the fix.  Still
received no response to neither of messages, and it is very unlikely
to happen in the nearest future.
<http://www.m17n.org/mlarchive/mule/> that mailing list contains at
most half-dozen msgs a month, and often no one in a month, so the
mailing list appears near to dead, and patch release of mule-ucs is
very unlikely.

Perhaps you will decide to maintain its own branch of mule-ucs.
Perhaps putting the patch in `PROBLEMS' file is enough.  Anyway,
posting it.

To comments and `ChangeLog' entry may add that actually checked the
byte compilers misfeature in question.  In both emacs 20.7 and xemacs
21.4 they process `(progn progn ...)' the same way as `(progn ...)'.
In emacs 21.3, 21.4a `(progn progn ...)'  is processed just as
interpreter does, that is, as `progn' variable reference.  Never
figured what such a misfeature depends on and what version changed it.

	* mucs-ccl.el (mucs-ccl-generate-registration-program): Return
	exactly list of forms suitable for including in BODY of `progn' or
	like.  Do not rely on byte-compiler (mis-) features.

--- mucs-ccl.el	2 Sep 2005 00:42:23 -0000	1.1.1.1

Why doesn't Emacs have apropos-function?

(defun apropos-function (regexp)
   "Show functions that match REGEXP."
   (interactive)
   (if (interactive-p)
       (let ((apropos-do-all t))
         (call-interactively 'apropos-command))
     (apropos-command regexp t)))

 > i	info-apropos

What Emacs version has info-apropos?

 > v	apropos-variable

If that command had a more specific name like apropos-option, we could
define apropos-variable like apropos-function above:

(defun apropos-variable (regexp)
   "Show variables that match REGEXP."

Can you provide an "xbacktrace" and "bt full" backtrace.

Please use M-x report-emacs-bug to include proper information
about your emacs version and environment, including additional
information about the crash (as instructed).

In any case, VM is one specific package which seems to be able to
crash emacs "quite consistently", but so far none of the VM users
have been able to help us really pinpoint what causes the trap.

If you can help in any way, it would be great.

Thanks.

Bug: Resolution of multiple Emacs windows on Tiger (OS X 10.4.2)

Hello!

I have been a long-time user of EMACS on OS X, but have come upon a 
new problem running any of the current Carbon EMACS distributions on 
Tiger ( I'm running 10.4.2).  This bug arises when opening multiple 
EMACS windows using the c-x 52 command.  Specifically, when I open 
the first EMACS window (when starting up the application) I get a 
normal-looking window with proper resolution of all alpha-numeric 
characters in the frame.  However, when I open a second window (using 
c-x 52) that new frame is displayed at a MUCH coarser resolution than 
is normal.  It looks as though the frame contains many fewer pixels 
than the first, because now all alpha-numeric characters are 
displayed so coarsely that you can see individual pixels making up 
each individual character.  However, when opening a THIRD window, 
that window is now displayed at the same high resolution as the 
first!  And when opening a FOURTH window, I get the same coarse 
display of the SECOND!!  This "fine-coarse" pattern continues for 
every pair of windows opened using c-x 52.  I have installed several 
different Tiger-compatible Carbon EMACS distributions and all have 
the same bug.

I'd like to get this bug fixed, so I don't have to keep opening pairs 
of windows (deleting the ODD-ordered one) to insure that all my 
working windows have the same high resolution.

Thanks!
Greg Burton
