It would be very good if we continued this discussion.

And if no agreement can be reached, will you add another patch to your
binary Emacs distribution and make it still more divergent, or will
you accept that perhaps it is better to leave it as it stands now?

I have already said I agreed. Somehow I misunderstood the problem thinking that keyboard layout was involved. It is not and I really do not understand why I thought that.

Sorry for the trouble, but at least I know now how Emacs works in this area and why the choice was made. It would probably be good if it was explained in the manual.

I have no intention of making my Emacs binary distribution be different from Emacs default if I can avoid it. On the other hand there are still bugs I know about that affects the w32 side mostly. I will tell as soon as I get time. I have made no patches for those bugs and would be glad if we fixed them instead.

The purpose of my binary distribution was (as I several times has said) to make it more easy to get Emacs up and running on w32. I was surprised that it was so difficult and time consuming. I know it is not a very high priority to make this easier, mostly because of lack of resources.
