Please write in English if possible, because the Emacs maintainers
usually do not have translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list,
and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

I had loaded a file reverse_geocode.sql
I type esc then x and issued the command hexlify-buffer after using tab to
find the proper completion for it.
The result tha I got was that the file disappeared and I could not undo
anything. Here is the result:
"-hex: No such file or directory"

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'.
If you would like to further debug the crash, please read the file
/usr/share/emacs/23.1/etc/DEBUG for instructions.

Okay, I see the problem now.  It is triggered because this particular
file is encoded in UTF-8 with signature (BOM).  This triggers a bug in
Emacs 23.1, which is fixed in Emacs 23.2 and later (the latest release
is version 23.3).

So the solution for you would be to upgrade to a newer Emacs.  Failing
that, you can work around the problem by typing this in Emacs, before
you invoke hexlify-buffer:

  C-x RET f utf-8 RET C-x C-s

This will recode the file in UTF-8, but without the BOM, and then the
bug in hexl will not be triggered.

I'm closing this bug.  Thanks for all your patience in following up.
