bug#9831: cause of bug found! [PATCH]

    Because this bug doesn't occur in Emacs 22, I compared to that code's
version of rmail-summary:


[Rmail 22]
(defun rmail-summary ()
  "Display a summary of all messages, one line per message."
  (interactive)
  (rmail-new-summary "All" '(rmail-summary) nil))

[Rmail 23.3]
(defun rmail-summary ()
  "Display a summary of all messages, one line per message."
  (interactive)
  (rmail-new-summary "All" '(rmail-summary) nil)
  (unless (get-buffer-window rmail-buffer)
    (rmail-summary-beginning-of-message)))


    As you can see, some well-meaning person added the functionality of
move-to-start-of-message to the display summary command ('h') and broke
rmail-output and associated functions.  I checked and none of the other
summary generating functions (e.g., rmail-summary-by-labels) have this
functionality (added).


    On the assumption that somebody wanted this functionality, here is
one way to patch things:

I believe it is now safe to remove the FIXME from rmailout.el:

    ;; FIXME should re-use existing windows.
    (if (rmail-summary-exists)
        (rmail-select-summary (rmail-update-summary)))
