Please do NOT send messages about problems with XEmacs to the FSF GNU
Emacs newsgroups and mailing lists unless you are sure that the
problem you are reporting is a problem with both versions of GNU
Emacs. People who aren't subscribed to the XEmacs mailing list most
likely are not interested in hearing about problems with it.
