Hm, previous version of xemacs or xemacs-packages-extra?  Which are the exact
versions of xemacs and xemacs-packages-extra it worked with?

Comment 2 Horst H. von Brand 2007-03-11 15:59:34 UTC
xemacs, xemacs-packages-extra hasn't changed in ages (it is still .fc6).
xemacs-packages-{base,extra} are from Sep 10, 2006, installed the next day.

I dunno which version of xemacs was before, the rotation of yum.log erased the
record of that one's installation.

Comment 3 Ville Skyttä 2007-03-11 17:05:39 UTC
The only changes between xemacs 21.5.27-7.fc7 and 8.fc7 were these:

Both look innocent enough to me, but perhaps you could test if reverting the
site-start.el change has any effect.  What's your $LANG environment variable set to?

Comment 4 Horst H. von Brand 2007-03-15 15:31:03 UTC

In any case, this went away (by mistake I tried reading email in xemacs, and it
worked this time, after reliably *not* working starting last week). Sorry, I
can't point at any of the many updates to rawhide which fixed this.

I guess you can close it now... sorry for the time wasted.


Comment 5 Horst H. von Brand 2007-03-18 00:22:47 UTC
Sorry, false alarm. When threading a huge folder (a few thousand messages,
message numbers up in the 80 thousands) it hung again. The workaround was to
thread the folder in plain emacs, delete a few hundred messages (junk easily
sorted by Subject:) and get at it again in xemacs.

Comment 6 Horst H. von Brand 2007-07-17 13:27:07 UTC
Futzing around with GNU emacs, it seems that when deleting a large number of
messages (or large messages) it runs out of "undo" space (that is the message
GNU emacs gives, instead of just hanging).

Why does it save the deleted messages in undo? MH saves them as ",<msg>" in the
folder, so they aren't lost. I suspect this is what makes many MH-E operations slow.

Comment 7 Horst H. von Brand 2007-10-01 13:29:07 UTC
After not using xemacs for quite some time for email, I tried again. I now seems
to work (xemacs-21.5.28-5.fc8, xemacs-packages-extra-20070427-1.fc8,

Thanks for the feedback, assuming fixed.
