Hi Karl,

thanks for taking care of this issue.

Well, I'm able to reproduce this behaviour with this minimalist setup.

Good news are that I have found out that my ~/.emacs-places seems to be
broken for CVS Emacs but works with the regular Emacs 21.3.

I have moved my original ~/.emacs-places to /tmp, opened CVS Emacs
again, edited some files and closed the session. After starting CVS
Emacs once more the problem disappeared because I can now leave with C-x
C-c and also the cursor appears at the right position in the last edited

I'll send you my ~/.emacs-places via private mail. I just wonder why it
makes CVS Emacs fail whereas it works fine with Emacs 21.3 because I
have never opened or edited ~/.emacs-places by hand.

By the way, I'm also reading the mailing list via gmane.org now.
