Ok thanks, then for now, I'll use a little command that is doing that
for me (funnily it seems to be impossible to type M-| with a German
keyboard, not even in X, because you need to hit Meta and AltGr and < at
the same time, and that doesn't generate an event at all).

And I guess epatch just makes nonsense and should be fixed.


Thanks,

Michael.
