The version by Ilya has hairy turned on by default, which is something RMS
refuses.  Must be something in there that works better for this code.  I use
the GNU variant with hairy, and other than $opt_s I had no problem with the
posted code.

I'm currently looking at a few fixes for this, and I'm upping the version to
4.33 and copyright 2003 to end this confusion.  The thing is that emacs
modules don't usually have their own versions (just belong to emacs 21.2 or
whatever).  So they don't update this variable, but when you look at CVS,
they've been doing quite a lot.  While Ilya seems to have abandoned this...

While manually scanning through the diff, I noticed a few fixes, including
one (failing M-x man) I had stumbled across myself in Ilya's.  From looking
through things there seems to remain a lot of work...
