This line is in my viper-cmd.el as well:

| (defun viper-replace-char-subr (com arg)
|   (let ((inhibit-quit t)
|         char)
|     (viper-set-complex-command-for-undo)
|     (or (eq viper-intermediate-command 'viper-repeat)
|         (viper-special-read-and-insert-char))
| 
|       (if (eq char ?\C-m) (setq char ?\n))
...

viper.el says:

| (defconst viper-version "3.11.1 of September 9, 2001"
|   "The current version of Viper")

| Library is file ..../emacs/21.4/lisp/emulation/viper.elc

(The path appears correct.)

| No Emacs Lisp load-path shadowings were found

Does this make any sense?


Thanks,
Olaf
