User-agent: Gnus/5.09 (Gnus v5.9.0) Emacs/21.3

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.

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:
windowed emacs: typing S-M-* has diff' effect than M-S-*
emacs -nw works okay

M-S-* produces:
M-* runs the command pop-tag-mark
   which is an interactive compiled Lisp function in `etags'.

Pop back to where M-. was last invoked.

This is distinct from invoking M-. with a negative argument
since that pops a stack of markers at which tags were found, not from
where they were found.
S-M-* produces:
* runs the command self-insert-command
(self-insert-command N)
   which is an interactive built-in function.

Insert the character you type.
Whichever character you type to run this command is inserted.
