And a couple more questions: 

  . What version of Emacs did you have before this one, that didn't
    have this problem (whatever "the problem" is)?

  . If you are using Emacs on Apple Terminal, why do you set TERM to

    say that on a real xterm, everything works fine.)

Finally, could you please try a newer version of Emacs?  v23.1 is
