I think someone said there was, but I have never seen it though I have
had these problem quite often. Can't remember the details now.

Which platform are you on? I am using MS Windows (2000 or XP).


Debian (etch) GNU/Linux, running emacs-snapshot-gtk, 22.0.90

Does the platform matter in this case?  I would have thought the elisp

hides those details...
