Unless nobody checked this using Emacs 21.4, it would then appear that
`copy-syntax-table' behaves indeed differently in XEmacs 21.5 and
Emacs 21.4.  Which of the two would be correct, I have no idea.  But
the call to `copy-syntax-table' seems like a mistake, anyway, and I am
surprised that we got no complaints from Emacs 21 users yet.
