Mmmm, but don't you think this the wrong way to fix the problem,
asking the already befuddled user [me] to add more special stuff to
his .emacs when it should be really fixed at emacs central, if indeed
they see it as a bug.   Indeed thank you for working out a solution
but as you have just made a function advice solution, it doesn't seem
it would be as useful if the emacs designers were going to fix the
root of the problem, then it would if you used the same energy to make
a patch to the .el file as a permanent fix...

Anyway, I just reported something funny I saw, not that it bugs me
daily.

By the way, i can't respond by e-mail because many of you have
hinet.net in your spam blacklist.
