That should be easy to fix.  Get a Savannah account, and from there, ask

bothered to follow the switch to Bazaar.  It might take a while to make
myself acquainted with it.  And unfortunately I failed to find a web
interface to the current Emacs sources in order to find out if somebody
has changed the RefTeX files, or in which way.


I suspect the change is not in the reftex file but in the behavior of
up-list which now obeys forward-sexp-function,



if thats a case, a lot of code will be broken.
Suggest to revert this change.

Both forms differ considerable from the users view BTW.
While the list handling code is easy to grasp and looks well defined,

the sexp-grammar with its "balanced expression" even after years sounds arcane for me.

forward-list etc. also have been reliable to deal with in coding,
sexp... not that much

Thanks

which means that under

latex-mode, it will now move from

\begin{foo}
>here<
\end{foo}

to just before the \begin.  So if the reftex code does not expect that
(and/or for performance reason doesn't want that), it should protect
against it by binding forward-sexp-function around calls to up-list
and friends.
