Re: Google search question.



Greetings Lukas,

Thank you so much for investigating this issue. I am glad to know that
I was not the only one affected. At the moment, I haven't found the
`C-c C-k' remedy to be too annoying, but if/when that moment will
come, I will surely implement your latter solution.

Thank you again.
