Hi Michael.  I'm amazed I saw your message.  I reported this bug on
emacs-pretest-bugs and don't read emacs-devel.  I just happened to
notice my name while looking through the archives for a Windows Emacs

Please, anyone, when replying to messages forwarded from a different

To answer your question:

  Its value is some
