strange behaviour of emacspeak under xemacs
This is probably due to some incompatibility between Xemacs and emacs.
I dont think I will have time to look at it any time soon.
Is there any reason why are insisting o using xemacs?
I hope it's not because of some misguided belief that xemacs is for X
and emacs isn't if so please drop that impression.
I am happy for you to use and iron out emacspeak kinks under xemacs--
in fact the xemacs developpers are planning to integrate emacspeak
into a future distribution of xemacs--
but since I dont use xemacs, it's unlikely that I'll have time to look
at each individual problem for you.
So in summary:
1) If you want to use xemacs, rely more on the comp.xemacs and xemacs
and contribute some hacking/learning time of your own.
2) Alternatively stick with emacs for now.
Incidentally, your brain-dead mailer is generating incorrect reply-to
addresses for you--
my message to you this morning bounced.
