User-agent: Gnus/5.11 (Gnus v5.11) Emacs/22.0.93 (gnu/linux)

Since no one responded, I went ahead and made the suggested changes.

> net/newsticker.el contains some bits from its pre-CVS past that should

>   "Insert IMG with STRING at point.

> 21.3.50.  Images inserted with `insert-image' vanished after doing
> `fill-region'."

>   ;;(insert-image img string)
>   ;; but it does not. Therefore we do this, which should be equivalent!
>   (let ((pos (point)))
>     ;;(insert string)
>     (insert ":-)")
>     (add-text-properties pos (point) (list 'display img))))
>  (defun newsticker--buffer-redraw ()
>   "Sometimes (CVS) Emacs forgets to update the window..."
>   (if (fboundp 'force-window-update)

>     (redraw-frame (selected-frame)))
