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.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list,
and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.

In GNU Emacs 21.1.1 (i386-redhat-linux-gnu, X toolkit, Xaw3d scroll bars)
 of 2001-12-06 on stripples.devel.redhat.com
configured using `configure  i386-redhat-linux --prefix=/usr --exec-prefix=/usr 
--bindir=/usr/bin --sbindir=/usr/sbin --sysconfdir=/etc --datadir=/usr/share 
--includedir=/usr/include --libdir=/usr/lib --libexecdir=/usr/libexec 
--localstatedir=/var --sharedstatedir=/usr/com --mandir=/usr/share/man 
--infodir=/usr/share/info --with-gcc --with-pop --with-sound'
Important settings:
  value of $LC_ALL: nil
  value of $LC_COLLATE: C
  value of $LC_CTYPE: nil
  value of $LC_MESSAGES: nil
  value of $LC_MONETARY: nil
  value of $LC_NUMERIC: nil
  value of $LC_TIME: nil
  value of $LANG: en_US

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

Type M-x, then type M-x, and your cursor moves back over the 'x' in
"M-x" in the minibuffer.  Then when you try to type a command, you get
"Text is read-only".  You shouldn't be able to move the cursor back
onto the prefix or prompt text in the minibuffer.  In Emacs 20, you
can't.
