BUG REPORT: Emacs is still aborting sporadically

From: Jani Averbach
Subject: BUG REPORT: Emacs is still aborting sporadically
Date: Mon, 17 Mar 2003 02:14:43 +0200 (EET)

Dear Emacs Bug-Team, this is continuing saga for this bug report:

However, my operating system has been changed after previous report,
so I think that there would be some value with this new report.

I also have two other suggestions.

My current OS is Gentoo GNU/Linux, and CVS-Emacs is still aborting
sporadically (so I think that this narrow a little bit down a case that
this is something to do about my system). It is hard to say any reason for
aborting, I am still editing mainly LaTeX files when emacs is aborting
itself. However I can't see any specific reason for that behaviour.

The Emacs was compiled without any special optimization (with it's own
default: -O2 -g), and the source has been taken from cvs
at 2003-03-15T13:56:00+0200.

There is also backtrace at the end of this email.

My second suggestion:

At the moment, when you are setting and savind emacs's options via
customize interface, emacs won't follow symbolic links, but overwrite
them. It would be nice if it would follow them.

For example I have following setup:
/raid/3/jaa/.emacs -> .emacs-jaa/dot-emacs
when .emacs-jaa and hence dot-emacs are under a version control.

My third concern:

Few days ago I was editing my LaTeX-files in utf-8 mode, and I am almoust
99% sure, that emacs truncated my file at two different place, effectively
corrupting them (in finnish there are few compound characters).  However,
I did not  try to reproduce this, so I cannot be absolutely sure about
that. Just for record, if somebody else is reporting something similar.

Could there be something that I has been done wrong?
