Elisp questions... where to ask?

Hi Everybody,
Where should I ask my elisp (for GNU Emacs) related questions? If this
the place, could you please help me solve this problem I am facing:

I wrote the following piece of code in the scratch buffer:
(define-skeleton test1
  "Prompt for name"
  "name:" str ?  (test2)) <Ctrl+x, Ctrl+e>

(define-skeleton test2
  "Prompt for surname"
  "surname:" str) <Ctrl+x, Ctrl+e>

(test1) <Ctrl+x, Ctrl+e> santanu chatterjee
Now when I run the test1 function, and give "santanu" and
"chatterjee" as the inputs to the two prompts, I get the result
as shown above. But that happens in Emacs 21.x. But in
Emacs 22.x and above, this creates some kind of infinite
recursion, and I am placed in a debug buffer.

Can you reproduce the same thing in your system? If so,
could you let me know what exactly should be done to make
this run in emacs 22.x and above. I tried to go through the
emacs NEWS for 22.x and I did find some things related to
skeleton.el, but due to my lack of knowledge of elisp, I could
not make out much from it.

Thanks i advance for your help.
