This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
 not to your local site managers!!
Please write in English, because the Emacs maintainers do not have
translators to read other languages for them.

In GNU Emacs 20.6.1 (sparc-sun-solaris2.6, X toolkit)
 of Thu May  4 2000 on rphs67
configured using `configure  --prefix=/psi/emacs-20 --with-pop'

Many docstrings in reftex.el are rather confusing because the
backslash is not protected. For example

(defun reftex-view-crossref (&optional arg auto-how)
  "View cross reference of macro at point.  Point must be on the KEY
argument.  When at at `\ref' macro, show corresponding `\label'
definition, also in external documents (`xr').  When on a label, show
a locations where KEY is referenced.  Subsequent calls find additional
locations.  When on a `\cite', show the associated `\bibitem' macro or
the BibTeX database entry.  When on a `\bibitem', show a `\cite' macro
which uses this KEY. When on an `\index', show other locations marked
by the same index entry.
To define additional cross referencing items, use the option
`reftex-view-crossref-extra'.  See also `reftex-view-crossref-from-bibtex'.
With one or two C-u prefixes, enforce rescanning of the document.
With argument 2, select the window showing the cross reference.
AUTO-HOW is only for the automatic crossref display and is handed through
to the functions `reftex-view-cr-cite' and `reftex-view-cr-ref'."
