I've found the same problem too, but no solution. I come across it when
pasting text from a web posting into emacs.

However, I have a script called 'ebuild' on my blog site which you might find
useful for updating and rebuilding emacs. Its all automatic until it wants to
install in '/usr/local/bin' when it just wants your password to install it. 

A taste of linux =
my git repo =
TGmeds =
Debian testing, Fluxbox 1.3.5, emacs
