Subject: bug#366: Problem executing emacs

This bug is being closed because it refers to what is now an old version
of Emacs, and because we need more information to be able to do anything
and it has not been provided. If you still see this problem with the
latest Emacs release, 23.3, please reply with the requested information
and we can reopen this report if needed.
