Thank you, Brendan, for the extra specifics.
Could it be that the "problem" is the emacs version, i.e., would
it be possible for you to also try the released (non-alpha)
version of Emacs, i.e. 21.4 (or 21.3 which is close) ?

We still will want to solve the Emacs 22.0.x problem, but it
would be good to know if the problem does appear at all in Emacs

Regards, Martin
