Hello there,

my problem is probably more Emacs related than ESS related, but ...

I use Emacs every day and all day, I mostly run Splus trhrough ESS and
write a lot of doc. (in French) with LaTeX through Auctex.  After I run
Emacs for a little while, for reasons unknown to me, the keyboard suddenly
change its behaviour I can't anymore type accented letters or LaTeX "\", or
Splus comment character "#", or "~" and any special characters.  The
behaviour doesn't seem to be mode specific since it happens in ESS mode as
well as in latex mode.  So far the only cure I found is to shutdown Emacs
and start over again, it happens several times a day which gets pretty

I am running Emacs 22.1 on an XP machine, this behaviour started when I
upgraded from Emacs 21.3 to 22.1 several months ago.  I am using version
3.6 of ESS.  I also run ESS 3.6 through Emacs 21.3.1 on a Linux box, over a
network, I never have this problem on that machine?

The Emacs Mule environment for settings Input Methods and Coding Systems is
a little bit over my head!

Any suggestions would be welcome, TIA.
