I've seen this as well in other contexts and have no idea what is triggering it -- other than that at some point something is pulling in tpu-edt -- an emulation package. Incidentally the missing state button is something I dont see, that is probably not emacspeak specific. >>>>> "Tim" == Tim Cross <firstname.lastname@example.org> writes: Tim> I've been looking into the problem with customize not Tim> providing an option to save changes when you activate Tim> the "state" button.

Tim> Tim> This is what I did to generate the backtrace. Tim> Tim> 1. Run customize-face and select a face to operate on. I Tim> chose minibuffer-prompt. 2.
