Uh, no, I'm using the "official" emacs-23.1 release. I downloaded it from the web and compiled it myself:

dirac projects $ ls -lad emacs-23.1*
drwxr-xr-x  34 ob  owner      1156 Jul 29 18:15 emacs-23.1/
drwxr-xr-x  15 ob  owner       510 Aug  5 11:56 emacs-23.1-compiled/
-rw-r--r--   1 ob  owner  34382732 Aug  5 11:25 emacs-23.1.tar.bz2
dirac projects $ md5sum emacs-23.1.tar.bz2
17f7f0ba68a0432d58fa69d05a2225be  emacs-23.1.tar.bz2
dirac projects $

The MD5SUM from 

The MD5 check-sums for the tarballs are: a620d4452769d04ad8864d662f34f8dd emacs-23.1.tar.gz 17f7f0ba68a0432d58fa69d05a2225be emacs-23.1.tar.bz2
And as I said, (emacs-version) says:

"GNU Emacs 23.1.1 (i386-apple-darwin9.7.0, NS apple-appkit-949.46)
 of 2009-08-05 on dirac.bitmover.com"

Note the 2009-08-05 which agrees with when I downloaded and compiled it.

Any other ideas? :)

You are using an old unreleased version of Emacs. First Emacs 23 was

I think I might have found a bug in either Emacs, or Ediff. I'm using

"GNU Emacs 23.1.1 (i386-apple-darwin9.7.0, NS apple-appkit-949.46) of
2009-08-05 on dirac.local"

"Ediff 2.81.2 of November 22, 2008"

I run M-x ediff-files and select two files. Then on the Ediff control panel
frame I press 'q' and I get

ediff-cleanup-mess: Attempt to delete minibuffer or sole ordinary window

in the *Messages* buffer. If in ediff-util.el.gz I remove the call to
(delete-window) on that function then it _appears_ to work, but I'm sure
that's not the right fix.

Furthermore, if I press '?' in that same Ediff Control Panel frame I get another frame with the expanded help. Pressing '?' in that other frame brings me back to the smaller frame (Ediff Control Panel) but leaves the new
expanded help frame around. This is different from the behaviour on
Linux/X11 where it only resizes the frame.

Any ideas what could be going on?



P.S. I couldn't find how to subscribe to emacs-devel, so please CC me on any
