setting marks under emacspeak-13.0

I'm missing something here ...
I'm getting some strange interaction between emacspeak-13.0 and
emacs-20.7.1 on a mandrake 7.2 system.  When I just run emacs with an
empty .emacs file I seem to be able to set marks, kill regions etc
with no problems. 
With the following .emacs file I keep getting messages like "the mark
is not active now".
(dtk-set-rate 95 t)
(emacspeak-toggle-character-echo t)
(setq outloud-default-speech-rate 95)
(global-set-key [kp-5] 'emacspeak-speak-line)
(emacspeak-remote-connect-to-server (getenv "REMOTEHOST") 2222)
(defun reestablish-connection () (interactive) (emacspeak-remote-connect-to-server  (getenv "REMOTEHOST") 2222))
(define-key global-map "\C-ed\C-r"'reestablish-connection)


that .emacs file seems about minimal to get remote speech working
under my set-up, it's just a few lines clipped from my original file.
Two curious things.  One is that exchange-point-and-mark seems to
work, the other is that an apparently equivalent version combination
on a more local redhat7.0 system also seems to work.   
Neither of these machines are root-accessible to me so I didn't
install the packages on either, but  I did send them the .rpm.  

Presumably I've inroduced *something* in moving my .emacs from one of
these machines to another, anyone see what it is?

And while I'm asking dumb questions, I've failed to navigate the
sourceforge site well enough to grab the current source for emacspeak,
I keep getting "not logged in" messages.  Do I need ssh before I can
get into this?
thanks again
