This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
not to your local site managers!
Please write in English, because the Emacs maintainers do not have
translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list,
and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.

In GNU Emacs 21.2.1 (i386-msvc-nt5.0.2195)
 of 2002-03-19 on buffy
configured using `configure --with-msvc (12.00)'
Important settings:
  value of $LC_ALL: nil

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:



The result of the apropos buffer looks great.  The symbols are
hilighted, and RET runs the command apropos-follow.  Using mouse-2,
however, does not work!

When I use C-h k, I find the following:

<mouse-2> at that spot runs the command apropos-mouse-follow

And indeed, in the Messages buffer, I find this:

apropos-mouse-follow: There is nothing to follow here [2 times]

Thus the function gets called, but it fails somehow.
Here is the code:

      (or (and (not (eobp)) (get-text-property (point) 'mouse-face))
          (and (not (bobp)) (get-text-property (1- (point)) 'mouse-face))
          (error "There is nothing to follow here"))

Now for the text properties in the Apropos buffer, using M-x
list-text-properties-at:

Text properties at 235:

face                 info-xref
item                 get-buffer-process

Thus, the mouse-face property is not there.
The info-xref is there because 
apropos-symbol-face's value is info-xref

Perhaps this is related to another variable?

apropos-label-face's value is 
(face italic mouse-face highlight)


Alex.
