borkenmacs

Emacs is giving me the shits today. It always used to be rock-solid but over the last few years the maintainers have been breaking shit left right and centre.

Some of it can be fixed by local configuration, but the rest is probably best fixed by going back to a previous version and compiling without the gtk+ toolkit.

Update: Oh i almost forgot because I haven't seen it in a while, bloody undo got broken at some point. It's particularly broken on ubuntu for some reason (where I just saw it, I don't normally use ubuntu but that's what parallella uses). Sometimes editing a file you can only undo a few lines. This is particularly bad if it's in the middle of a kill-yank-undo cycle as you can end up with unrecoverably lost work.

For a text editor I can think of no higher sin.
