address@hidden: Emacs 21.2.92 - Bizarreness in `C-h f']

This is probably caused by the fact that parse-time.el contains
(defvar elt).  In other words, there is confusion between the file
that defines the function and the file that defines the variable.

I will fix it by renaming the variable used in parse-time.el,
which I think is an improvement anyway.  But the bug in recording
definitions is more general than this and would be good to fix.

Would someone like to work on it?

Hello, Gerd.  Still using Emacs 21.0.105...

If I do `C-h f elt RET' in a bare Emacs session, I get:

- ---------------------------------------------------------------------->
elt is a built-in function.
(elt SEQUENCE N)

Return element of SEQUENCE at index N.
- ----------------------------------------------------------------------<

If now, I do `M-x load-library RET parse-time RET', and retry `C-h f':

- ---------------------------------------------------------------------->
elt is a built-in function in `parse-time'.
(elt SEQUENCE N)

Return element of SEQUENCE at index N.
- ----------------------------------------------------------------------<

In that `*Help*' window, `TAB RET' yields:

- ---------------------------------------------------------------------->
Cannot find definition of `elt' in library `parse-time'
- ----------------------------------------------------------------------<

I'm tempted to think that some of the later replies are not normal.
