Hi Richard,

I'm sorry it has been such a long time since I responded.  I've been limping
along with the current way emacs is working on my systems and don't have the
skill set to do what you have asked here.  It has been a long time since I
debugged anything on a UNIX system.

I wonder if you can provide me with modified sources to help identify the
cause of this?  Otherwise, if you are willing to send me instructions on how
to do what you are asking I'll try that out too.
