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:


Most emacs users that I have talked about this problem aggree that hitting
accidentally the print screen buttom prints the buffer WITHOUT prompting
is really annoying. I have lost a lot of paper and pacience in this way,
and so a lot of people for sure. If developers don't want just unbind the
print buttom (the best solution), a simple yes-no confirmation would not
harm a printing friendly user. Just a y-n confirmation is not enough,
because printing is always expensive. There is the "Print Buffer" menu
item for that.

I have solved globally binding [print] to some message in my .emacs.

Amazing how this unfortunate "feature" resisted so long...
