Re: Bug#142608: emacs21: please apply flyspell patch from preview-latex package

Gnus/5.09 (Gnus v5.9.0) Emacs/21.2.50
I have now checked the patch from Emacs-21.1 to Emacs-21.2. The fixes
are not contained in Emacs-21.2, so it seems they would have been
judged not important enough for the bug fix release 21.2, which I find
unfortunate. The bugs are not present in the current CVS version,
however, so it may be hoped that they will not make it into 21.3. As
the main author of preview-latex, and the author of these patches, I
would recommend applying them at the very least when you are
installing preview-latex. They are rather certainly not causing more
trouble than the original behavior. They have been tested, and either
they. or equivalent changes, have been put into the current Emacs
sources long ago.
The bugs will affect every package using overlays with keymaps of
their own, not just preview-latex. I don't know, however, whether
there are packages around where the impact is as annoying as here.

I will update preview-latex documentation to state that those bugs
remain in Emacs-21.2. Pity.
