Sorry folks, I've been buried under hundreds of unread messages and
didn't get to this message until now.

There have been few changes to MH-E since Emacs 23 was released, so an
incompatibility must have been introduced recently which broke
existing MH-E code.

I'd like to thank Stefan and Juanma for fixing MH-E, as well as Stefan
for replacing all the set-buffers with with-current-buffer--that was
on my list of things to do.

Glenn, you aren't suggesting that the use of require and the Makefile
rule are obsolete, are you? MH-E uses require to avoid reloading the
same file repeatedly and uses the same Makefile semantics as Emacs
uses to build loaddefs.el to build the mh-loaddefs.el file.
