You'r welcome.

Thanks for this hint. I wasn't aware of this, after reading the good
documentation etc/DEBUG, great possibilities.

I've sat it up and am able to define a watchpoint which calls xbacktrace. I
have to play around with it a little, because in this straight forward
atempt, it is to slow. There is no possibility to do any real keystrokes in
the debuged emacs.

So, now, playtime... :-)

With kind regards,
Stefan
