Thanks. That is good to know. Something might have changed in the
handling of the keys since I last merged.

The EmacsW32 version tries to use the Windows keys as Emacs meta. In
Windows 7 that has become less convenient since Windows 7 now grabs
more of those key combinations. Alt is however still inconventient to
use as Emacs Meta in my opinion so I will think about what to do when
I have a chance to merge again. (I might use Caps Lock as an
alternative Meta key.)

Unfortunately it will probably be a long time until I can merge again.
There are a lot of things I am dependent on in EmacsW32 (escpecially
for org-mode).
