Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

I think dired-copy-filename-as-kill ("w") is a kill command.  In that
case, I think that the "\C-\M-w" append-next-kill command should apply
to dired-copy-filename-as-kill.  But it is not the case: is that

To reproduce the "bug" (?), get a Dired window, put the cursor on a
file's line, type "w" to kill (copy) the filename, then put the cursor
on another file's line, type M-C-w (append-next-kill) and then w.  At
this point I thought there would be the concatenation of the two
strings on the top of the kill ring.  Then get an empty buffer (C-x b
temp RET) and yank (C-y).  What has been yanked is the last filename,
and not both filenames.

I want to thank all the people who develop, support, or help in any
other means, free software.  I wanted freedom.  I get freedom.
