    Take a look at the linked files in /etc/rc2.d

    Possible causes:

    Lookahead buffering.

    [ubuntu] Re: Weird problem with Emacs23

    That's not emacs. The emacs editor is a text-based editor. That's x11emacs, so set a smaller font for x11emacs.

    Or, open a terminal window and run emacs from there like the developers intended. ;)

    xulrunner-1.9.1 is a dependency of firefox-3.5

    Install the libmozjs and you have to ubinstall a lot of stuff - because libmozjs is not compatible with xulrunner-1.9.1.

    So make a copy of the existing magic file and copy the one from a 9.04 iso. See if it works as expected. That's easier than trying to trace how the diffs will be interpreted.
