Miles> Why do you think this has anything to do with emacs?

well, what else could have eaten the word "./fetchmail" from my
command line.  I did this again today and the problem didn't occur.
The culprit must be an intermittent problem in *shell* buffers as to
how much is prompt and how much the user typed.

I can't reproduce it, but user beware: use fancier prompts and
sometimes less [or more] of what you typed might get sent to the
shell.

Got any better ideas?  No better ideas then Miles becomes Feet in my
