Whenever I start XEmacs, I get two buffers created called
*Warnings-Show* and *Warnings* which each have the following content
The meanings of the modifier bits Mod1 through Mod5 are determined
by the keysyms used to control those bits. Mod1 does NOT always
mean Meta, although some non-ICCCM-compliant programs assume that.
Two distinct modifier keys (such as Meta and Hyper) cannot generate
the same modifier bit, because Emacs won't be able to tell which
modifier was actually held down when some other key is pressed. It
won't be able to tell Meta-x and Hyper-x apart, for example. Change
one of these keys to use some other modifier bit. If you intend for
these keys to have the same behavior, then change them to have the
same keysym as well as the same modifier bit.
(3) (key-mapping/warning) XEmacs: Alt_R (0x71) generates Mod1, which is
generated by Meta.
and my screen is split, showing the contents of *Warnings-Show*. Harmless
enough, I just got to another buffer and unsplit the screen, but I'm
wondering what causes it and how I can get rid of it. It's not caused by
anything in any of my .emacs* or .xemacs* files (I removed them, and it
still comes up, and it happens for other users too). It's XEmacs 21.1
running under SuSE 6.4, BTW.
Responses along the lines of "use vim" will noted and put on the "to be
larted at the earliest opportunity" stack.
