Well, I don't have an actual clue about when these problems started
appearing. And there has been "fixing" going on for a _lot_ that is
not in FOR-RELEASE.

These don't need to be fixed to start pretest, but we call the
attention of Windows users to fixing them.
** address@hidden 09 Aug 2006: ispell.el problem on Cygwin.
(Did we decide that is unreproducible?)
Bug, not misfeature, but likely old?
** address@hidden Sep 20 says make-frame ignores left
** address@hidden: smtpmail.el bug involving base64 encoding.
Bug, likely old.
** C-p works properly with fields within the line, but C-n does not.
(address@hidden, Sep 24.)
** Should end-of-line get stuck at end of a field?
Both of those are either old misfeatures, or introduced by turning one
old misfeature into a new one.
** Text copied between font-lock buffers doesn't refontify
because of properties that are preserved. May be fixed now?
** address@hidden, Sep 21: An iso-8859-6 cannot be saved
** XIM hotkey doesn't work in Emacs.
Likely old. People that work on those things would have more of a
clue whether these are regressions or rather something that was broken
And the field movement stuff _clearly_ was of the sort which is not
helping towards a pretest, since a behavior that was seemingly not
satisfactory has been replaced by other behaviors which are seemingly
not satisfactory, and it takes time for the complaints to register.
It was a change of overall strategy, and we don't want those right
