Re: DECtalk and emacs 21.3

what was disturbing was that he had two different versions of emacs on
two different flavors of debian and concluded the issue was with Emacs
which was subsequently made worse by Tim's added confusion about
Dectalk not running on Debian stable.

To isolate a problem and blame on any component --e.g. emacs 21.3 --
 the first basic step is to ensure that all other bits are the same.
