2.0.36 is way old. The current stable version is 2.0.55, and I shall

As I said already, I'm an XEmacs rookie. If you could provide your
patches, and if they are small enough (not more than ~15 lines at
all), I will be glad to apply them. If it isn't such tiny, we would
need paperwork, or I would need to write the patches by myself given
on the symptoms you report. Anyway, I would appreciate all your

I see. For the inode number we could apply the same trick as we have
for the date: treat it as real number, and convert later. Could you,
please, check whether the appended patch works for you?
