(Sigh) A 3rd "See I am so helpful" post. Look - there is no
useful content in any of your three replies.

Other than my stated reason (an important old elisp script that
doesn't run under current versions), I think the memory foot-print
and launch-time could well be the reason for anybody wanting
to run emacs-19 or even earlier on current systems instead of the
current. As you say, it is a frequent-enough request, and I asked
a legitimate question that you fail to address anywhere close
in 3 posts...

Why can't you just try to answer a straight-forward question,
as you seem to suggest you "want to help"? As it turned out,
if I had mentioned cemacs (and mentioned that I don't want
to use MULE), I would be drawing myself into a
flame war regarding MULE's merits. That had seemed to be a
sensitive subject to some others (address@hidden - who I believe
is possibly involved in MULE's development as I seems to have
come across that name in other projects). It is a fairly personal
choice - cemacs versus MULE, emacs 19 versus 21, and I don't really
need to explain why I prefer one to the other.

I asked a technical question and reported a possible bug
of an old unmaintained version of emacs, which I believe
some other people may like to continue to use for their own
reasons - those reasons are somewhat irrelevant to the question.
I would really prefer it to stay that way.

Thanks for another "I am trying to help and I am not saying
anything" post...

dude... i was trying to help initially... i know lots of people on
mailing lists who for some reason or other like to run the latest and
greatest linux kernel and gnu c libraries, but yet use whatever old
program they can find (eg your old emacs) so it wasnt exactly a stupid
thing to suggest you upgrade... if you described your system in so much
detail, how come you managed to leave out the bit about cemacs!!!

i really dont give a shit if you start using xemacs... was that supposed
to be some kind of lame threat, cuz it doesnt exactly scare me :-/

get a fuckin life,
