Yes, my article on this was unrelated to your problem.

Could you please try if the problem also exists in Emacs 22 (trunk)?
As I understand from the previous messages, it only exists in
emacs-unicode-2 (Emacs 23).  Is this correct?  Then I could remove it
from the list of release-relevant bugs for Emacs 22

It exist in XEmacs; If it doesn't exist in Emacs, it is simply
ignored.  No problem.

I don't know about the rest of your questions:
