address@hidden: Re: emacs 21.2 odd behavior in shell window]

Ok, I am back to the problem again.

HP-UX 11.0 compiled with cc.


I am in a shell window.  BTW, my default shell is csh, terminal type is "dumb".
I try to run a fortran program or a sh script, which prompt for a filename.
At the prompt for the filename, I decide that I want to kill it and do something
else.  So in all previous versions of emacs, I would hit ^C^C, which was bound
to comint-interupt-subjob and the program was aborted.

Now when I hit ^C^C in emacs 21.2, I get nothing.
I then hit ^H^C ^C^C and it says it is bound to comint-interupt-subjob.
I then type esc-: (comint-interupt-subjob) and the program is sucessfully

I am unable to duplicate the problem (right now at least).  What I had (ever
since installing 21.2) was that if I started a program in a shell and it was
prompting for a filename or whatever, if I hit ^C^C it did *NOT* abort the
program.  But if I did esc-x comint-interupt-subjob, that *DID* abort it.  But
in checking the keystroke, it really was bound to `comint-interupt-subjob' as it
should have been.  I know it sounds dumb, but it did it repeatedly, hence my
note to the list.

The ^C^C did nothing at all.  No interupt, no beep, nada.

Not much help, I know.

I'll let you know if it re-occurs.
