Did 23.1 have the same problem?

No, it doesn't.  So that changes things completely.  I guess I have to
try a bisection to find the revision between 23.1 and 23.2 where the
bug first appears.  It may be a little while before I have time to do

The first thing you could try is just a straight rebuild of the 23.2
package (if you were testing a pre-built binary). I have a vague
memory of some transient DOC related weirdness with emacs-snapshot
packages that just seemed to go away on its own (?). So maybe it was
just a build glitch.

Thanks for the suggestion. This is indeed a build glitch, but I don't understand what's happening yet. If I unpack the emacs-23.2 source and just build it (./configure && make) the bug is gone. But normally I build emacs for Cygwin by using a packaging tool called cygport, which (among other things) does an out-of-tree build. I don't know if this is causing the problem. My build of emacs-23.1 also used cygport and didn't exhibit the bug. So I have to keep investigating.
