You don't explain the problem you are seeing clearly,
Jason, no offense, but this is BS (and a cop out) and I take some
degree of displeasure in pointing out that;
- Your recent follow up to bug#4814 was not cc'd to me;
My apologies, I assumed the bug tracker took care of this.
- The bug report in question is now nearly 10 months old;
There are bugs in the bug tracker that are much older. While it might
be nice to get a quick response to everything, that isn't always the way
things work in projects that rely on people volunteering their spare
time to work on the project.
- The nature of the bug wasn't/isn't a clearly describable problem.
Describing the symptoms you see is a good start. Without that, noone is
going to waste time trying to figure out what the bug is so they can
start looking at it.
Moreover, I did my best to indicate (and document) specifically that
the problem did appear (at least to me) to involve:
Speculation about the possible cause of the bug is not what we need. We
need to know what the symptoms are.

with these two builds known to work as expected:

| of 2009-06-30 on LENNART-69DE564 (patched)"
| - "Emacs 23.1.1 of 2009-07-30 on SOFT-MJASON"
These are 5+ months apart. There are many more potential causes than
the few you've highlighted.
Since you are no longer prepared to help, we'll just have to leave this
open in the hope that anyone hitting the same problem in future will be
able to give us more information.
