Thank you for your report.  However, I don't think I understand what
is it that doesn't work in Emacs 25.1 as you expect.  What you
describe are simply indications of some redesign and reimplementation
in this area, but the functionality definitely works for me.

Could you perhaps give a recipe, starting from "emacs -Q", which
reproduces the problems you are seeing, and describe the expected
behavior and the actual one?  That would allow us to analyze the
problems you see.
