bug#19363: Acknowledgement (24.4.1; Notifications can make ERC unusable)


From: Dima Kogan

Date: Wed, 31 Dec 2014 00:34:28 -0800

Here's a patch. It works, but I don't like how un-future-proof it is. An
uncareful coder can simply use (forward-word) somewhere and get things
to break again. Is there a better way?

Subject: [PATCH] ERC no longer gets confused by subword-mode

In commit 6ddc44225e743e2b2a0d5c192f50aefd7a4a915b subword-mode was
integrated into the syntax table instead of simply remapping the
interactive motion bindings as was done previously.  This had the
unintended effect of changing the behavior of lisp programs that touch
words.  In the case of ERC, it completely broke it: emacs now throws an
error when ERC is launched, making it unusable when subword-mode is
active.

This commit temporarily disables subword-mode so that ERC functions that
touch words do so the "normal" way.

Closes: #17558
