bug#8674: 23.3; Face header rendering bug in Gnus v5.13 on GNU Emacs 23.

From: Benjamin L. Russell
Subject: bug#8674: 23.3; Face header rendering bug in Gnus v5.13 on GNU Emacs 23.3.1 (i386-mingw-nt5.1.2600) on Windows XP Professional, Service Pack 3
Date: Mon, 16 May 2011 06:38:24 +0900

There is a bug in GNU Emacs 23.3.1 that prevents correct rendering of
Face headers in NNTP postings.  Specifically, the following Emacs Lisp
code in my ~/.gnus.el file for inserting a face header in a USENET
posting works on GNU Emacs 23.2.1, but not on version 23.3.1, with Gnus

> (setq gnus-posting-styles
>    '((".*"
>       (name "Benjamin L. Russell")
>       ("Face"
>        (gnus-face-from-file "~/butterflyLang.jpg")
>        ))))

The following procedure reproduces this bug:

1. Invoke Emacs in Windows XP Professional, Service Pack 3, by
double-clicking on C:\emacs\emacs-23.3\bin\runemacs.exe.

2. Within Emacs, type the following command:

> M-x gnus RET

3. Within Gnus, subscribe (if not already subscribed) to the news.test

4. Within Gnus, type the following command to post a new message:

> a

5. Compose a test message, with subject, say, "test," and subject body,
say "test."

6. Send the message with the following command:

> C-c C-c

7. After a few seconds, refresh the newsgroup with the following

> / N

8. Read the test message just posted.  The message will be missing the
face header, which should be an icon placed immediately to the left of
the sender name in the "From" field of the message.
