Save Options vs. default-input-method

"Save Options" menu-item saves the default value of default-input-method
(which is specified in the language environment) instead of the one you
have chosen in the menu Options / MULE / Select Input Method. This is
confusing. I'd expect that Save Options will save the value I have
specified via the mentioned menu. And even worse (that actually happened to
me): if you already have customized default-input-method in the file
~/.emacs to different value, after running emacs and "Save Options", this
variable will be overwritten with the input-method which is the default for
the language environment you have specified. I do not use the default
input-method as specified via my language environment so I can not use that
menu-item at all :-(

To reproduce (I have tried without any .emacs, without site files etc.):

LANG=cs_CZ emacs

<menu-bar> <options> <mule> <set-input-method>


<menu-bar> <options> <save>

Now, my .emacs contains '(default-input-method "czech")) instead of
czech-prog-2 which I would expect.

The same happens if you use different language environment, like with

LANG=ru_RU emacs

The same applies to current CVS HEAD. Any details needed?

This doesn't mean you should mix false(1) and true(1) editors.
