Subject: bug#12090: 24.1.50; "C-h c" mutilates M-c when c is a non-ASCII character

This bug report will be sent to the Bug-GNU-Emacs mailing list
and the GNU bug tracker at debbugs.gnu.org.  Please check that
the From: line contains a valid email address.  After a delay of up
to one day, you should receive an acknowledgment at that address.

Please write in English if possible, as the Emacs maintainers
usually do not have translators for other languages.

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug, and
the precise symptoms of the bug.  If you can, give a recipe
starting from `emacs -Q':

 emacs -Q
   => M-Ր (translated from <escape> א) is undefined

(I type ALEPH by switching the keyboard to Hebrew.  With a hebrew
input method, I cannot produce META-ALEPH, I get M-t instead.  Maybe
it's a separate problem.)

Now, if I step through key-description, I see that the key arrives
there as [27 1488], which seems correct (1488 is 0x5d0, the Unicode
codepoint of ALEPH).  Then this fragment:

      else if (EQ (key, meta_prefix_char))
          add_meta = 1;

correctly decides that META modifier should be applied.  But then this
fragment (see the line marked with "<<<<<<<"):

          if (!INTEGERP (key)
              || EQ (key, meta_prefix_char)
              || (XINT (key) & meta_modifier))
              args[len++] = Fsingle_key_description (meta_prefix_char, Qnil);
              args[len++] = sep;
              if (EQ (key, meta_prefix_char))
            XSETINT (key, (XINT (key) | meta_modifier) & ~0x80);  <<<<<<<<

resets the 0x80 bit of 0x5d0, converting it to 0x550 in the process,
which yields the Armenian character shown above.

Is this a bug, a feature, or what?

If Emacs crashed, and you have the Emacs process in the gdb debugger,
please include the output from the following gdb commands:
    `bt full' and `xbacktrace'.
