This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
not to your local site managers!
Please write in English, because the Emacs maintainers do not have
translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list,
and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.

In GNU Emacs 21.1.1 (i386-msvc-nt4.0.1381)
 of 2001-11-01 on MFERGUSON_NT
configured using `configure --with-msvc (12.00)'
Important settings:
  value of $LC_ALL: nil
  value of $LC_COLLATE: nil
  value of $LC_CTYPE: nil
  value of $LC_MESSAGES: nil
  value of $LC_MONETARY: nil
  value of $LC_NUMERIC: nil

  value of $LANG: ENU

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

Running 21.1 on NT 4.0 SP6a, with COMSPEC set to 4nt.exe (version
3.02b), I can't use M-x shell.  It crashes with the following
information:

......................................................................

4NT  3.02B   Windows NT 4.00
Copyright 1988-1999  Rex Conn & JP Software Inc.  All Rights Reserved
4NT S/N ES650241, registered to Mickey Ferguson
for use on a single computer.  May not be distributed to others.

The instruction at 0042b85b referenced memory at 00901000
The memory could not be written
Process shell exited abnormally with code 5

......................................................................

If I change the COMSPEC environment variable (using M-x setenv) to
c:\winnt\system32\cmd.exe, shell works fine.  I could provide my .emacs
contents if needed, although this problem happens even if I start up
emacs using the --no-init-file --no-site-file switches, so that
shouldn't be a factor.

Can anyone provide any further information about exactly how emacs actually
runs the program associated with COMSPEC?  Maybe I can pass this info along
to the 4dos/4nt authors (JP Software) and they might be able to figure it
out.
