If that can be used (which requires the use of USE_LSB_TAG), it's
a better solution indeed.

Could you elaborate on this? I don't know anything about USE_LSB_TAG. All I know is that I applied the patch and built emacs, and so far it seems to work fine. But I only did this a day or two ago, so maybe a problem could still show up. (Previously I've always used the workaround described in etc/PROBLEMS.) Is there some test I should try to see if my build is OK?
