Hi Erich,

do you know how to use the backquote? It is explained here:

  (find-elisp-intro "10. Backquote")

Something like this _should_ work - but here it sometimes runs the
lowercase coex in the old frame...

  (defun Coex (&rest pos-spec-list)
    (find-wset "F_" "Coex" `(coex ,@pos-spec-list)))
