These bugs have been reported, discussed with RMS and fixed in the
Emacs sources about half a year ago. I do not have Emacs-21.2
available itself here, so cannot verify the state in the released
version. If the patches apply cleanly (without complaining about
reverse patches, or inapplicable hunks), they are necessary for proper
interaction with preview-latex.
Please report back whether this is definitely so so that I might
adapt preview-latex documentation accordingly. I would find it
appalling if this were the case, and the current preview-latex
documentation would be in error since it states that after version
21.1 the bugs are supposed to no longer exist.
