I've tried to reproduce this using the latest version of Emacs (26.2)
but have been unable to do so.

I see that this bug was reported 9 years ago.  Can you still reproduce
it on the newest version of Emacs?

I can see in the bug report some minor-modes that would not have been
enabled by default.  If you can still reproduce this, could you please
provide an exact recipe to do so starting from "emacs -Q"?

If I don't hear back from you in a couple of weeks, I'll just close this
as unreproducible.
