Thank you,

Indeed that seems to work, but it is non-intuitive. Who would know
that C-6 can be used as substitute of C-^?

I would like to see natural key used as default, which would not 
cause confusion and possible data loss (as in my case). Luckily
the #buffer# files were there. 

Key C-' would be  better, because

  .. you see the (') key - and you can reach it in all keyboards
  .. you press the Ctrol-key and that key

and is works.
