RE: [h-e-w] ruby-mode.el crashes my Emacs 2.3.1 on NT4

It was the original .el file. Following your suggestion I narrowed the 
offending section down to
(eval-when-compile (require 'cl))

or just (require 'cl) AFAICS. Yet when I do an eval-current-buffer on cl.el I 
don't get any problems - presumably I need to get rid of cl.elc and recompile 
the thing.

OK, thanks for you help (note to self: must learn e-lisp one of these days...)
