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 20.7.1 (i586-pc-linux-gnulibc1, X toolkit)
 of Wed Oct 11 2000 on arrows

It's very minor, but I am sure it qualifies as a buglet.

Create a buffer


then convert to hexl-mode

M-X hexl-mode

then position the cursor somewhere in to the 5th byte and do

C-Q 0400 RET

and you get

00000000: 6162 630a 10065 660a 6768 690a             abcdef.ghi.

which has been a bit corrupted.

It is caused by the
        (insert (format "%02x" ch))
on or about line 694 of hexl.el.


(Your rate of reply to my last hexl emacs-bug was stunning.
