Thanks, that's what I needed to know.

It would seem that your comment is an indication that it is indeed
necessary to have such a disclaimer when asking a question these days.

I am to isolate a problem with Carbon Emacs. I might not like it that
way, but that's the way it is. I imagine myself being a car mechanic
and everytime someone brings in a car for repair I am going to suggest
he better buy a different car and instead of trying to fix the
problem, everyone gets engaged in a heated discussion about which car
is better. Doesn't work that way, does it?! Only in the IT world does
this seem to be widely accepted.
