bug#23685: Emacs 25.0.94.1; Undo is clumping together delete-forward-cha


From: Alan Mackenzie
Subject: bug#23685: Emacs 25.0.94.1; Undo is clumping together delete-forward-char commands from distant parts of the buffer.
Date: 3 Jun 2016 13:49:47 -0000
User-agent: tin/2.3.1-20141224 ("Tallant") (UNIX) (FreeBSD/10.3-RELEASE (amd64))

This isn't a bug, so closing.
The problems below only occur in some (undetermined) circumstances,
possibly when edebug is active.
