copying control characters is broken.

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.

In GNU Emacs 21.3.1 (sparc-sun-solaris2.7, X toolkit)
 of 2004-10-18 on slbuilds
configured using `configure  --with-gcc=no'
Important settings:
  value of $LC_ALL: nil
  value of $LC_COLLATE: en_US
  value of $LC_CTYPE: en_US
  value of $LC_MESSAGES: C
  value of $LC_MONETARY: en_US
  value of $LC_NUMERIC: en_US
  value of $LC_TIME: en_US
  value of $LANG: en_US
  locale-coding-system: iso-latin-1
  default-enable-multibyte-characters: t

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

Place a control character in the text ^L (control-L).
Delete region which contains the control character using either
kill-line or kill-region.

Finally paste the region in a new area with the yank command.
The ^L will be changed for a null char (^@) and placed at the
end of the yanked region.

This is a problem because most of our source code has ^L (line feeds)
between every function. Cutting and pasting gives null characters here
and there. 

Thanks, address@hidden
