The same thing happens to me on Digital UNIX 4.0f when I compile
As near as I can tell, there is severe brokenness in XEmacs in Digital
Unix. It happens to show up most clearly when compiling with Mule,
but I have no reason to believe that it is Mule-specific. I am
currently running a binary on OSF 4.0e and many things work and some
things don't work. What is your configuration? I've attached mine.
At least XEmacs runs enough to process email.

I thought I tried this (and it behaved the same way), but maybe not.
I'll try when I get into work tomorrow.
I protest the NATO war in Yugoslavia.
