Hello Michael,

Hi,

dunno if I understood you right...

So, you have set the mark (in a buffer that is not read only), moved the
cursor to somewhere else to define a rectangle, and hit C-x r k, and the
rectangle was not killed, right?  No, that should work.  Do you get any
message or error?


what you described is exactly what happens. No error message, nothing: just ignore the instruction of killing the rectangle.
Looking through forums, the general advice I found was to switch to gnu emacs
compiled for Snow Leopard, which I did.
However all standard commands were working on my former MacBook, which Snow Leopard: the problem seems related to 10.8 (Mountain Lion).

Cheers,
