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-msvc-windows98.2222)
 of 2001-10-22 on buffy
configured using `configure --with-msvc (12.00)'
Important settings:
  value of $LC_ALL: nil
  value of $LC_COLLATE: nil
  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: enu
  locale-coding-system: iso-latin-1
  default-enable-multibyte-characters: t

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

The problem concerns using find-grep-dired under from NTEmacs 21.1.1
running under Windows98.  The shell command that this normally invokes
contains slashes ('\'), while only the version without slashes works.
The email below, citing my posting to the help-emacs-windows mail list
explains the fix that worked for me.

What probably matters is that I'm using (the latest) 'find' and 'ls'
versions from Cygwin.

This looks like it's a bug report waiting to get filed
(along with a diff or this posting) on gnu.emacs.bug!
