I'm using OS X's pre-installed emacs (gnu 21.1.1), and I've done this, but it's not working quite right. Commands that start with "C-" work fine, commands that start with "M-" work fine, but when I hold down both Ctrl and Meta, the Ctrl is ignored. For instance, if I try to run mark-sexp using C-M-@, Emacs interprets it as M-@, which is bound to mark-word. Using ESC C-@ instead seems to work fine, it's just a pain to type. Any ideas as to what might be wrong? Does anyone else using the same setup even see this behavior? I haven't been able to find any mention of it.
