There are some problems here, however, at least on 
NTEmacs 20.6 and 20.7.

If I start emacs on NT with "emacs --no-init-file" 
and evaluate 

  (define-key global-map "\C-;" 'forward-char)

then M-x becomes undefined.

If I start emacs and do

  M-: (define-key global-map [?\C-;] 'forward-char)

then C-; works as expected.

If I start emacs, put

  (define-key global-map [?\C-;] 'forward-char)

in the *scratch* buffer, and evaluate the expression, 
then the parser seems to think that the ";" marks the 
beginning of a comment.

For example, if I position the curser at the 
beginning of the line, and type C-M-x to evaluate 
it, I get 

  Scan error: "Unbalanced parentheses", 183, 245
