It seems to work perfectly now.

Thanks very much for that, its made my Emacs experience a lot more enjoyable.

Now when I try to use right command as meta, emacs always picks it up as
meta+super and OSX catches it. So I have errors like:
M-s-x when I press <right-command>-x
<C-M-s-268632086> is undefined when I press C-<right-command>-v

However, if I set ns-command-modifier to nil (as opposed to super), everything
appears to work correctly.

Thanks for that. When I set
to meta, Emacs correctly interprets commands like:
but if I try to use a command like C-M-v, Emacs says:
<C-M-268632086> is undefined.
I presume that OSX is still catching the command key although Emacs can
interpret it as meta.

If I set ns-command-modifier to meta I do not have this problem.

Also, if I set ns-right-control-modifier to meta, Emacs does not
interpret right control correctly. That is it inteprets
<right control>-v as C-v
C-<right control>-v as C-v
when ns-right-control-modifier is set to meta.

I'll check.


Should I file a separate bug report?

No, it is in the scope of this one.
