Here is what I have before the restore commit.

CRM Buffer                 Size Mode             File
.   brltty-9999.ebuild     4916 Text
/usr/local/portage/app-accessibility/brltty/brltty-9999.ebuild
    default.xml           48920 nXML Invalid
    /etc/freeswitch/conf/dialplan/default.xml
     %* *Completions*           275 Completion List
            *scratch*               145 Lisp Interaction
             %* *Messages*              578 Messages

And here is what I get after the commit
CRM Buffer                 Size Mode             File
    *scratch*               145 Lisp Interaction
     %* *Messages*              206 Messages
            brltty-9999.ebuild     4916 Text
            /usr/local/portage/app-accessibility/brltty/brltty-9999.ebuild
            .   default.xml           48920 nXML Invalid
            /etc/freeswitch/conf/dialplan/default.xml

and if I quit emacs and use emacs before the commit, I get the first
one.

Hope this helps.
