* mule/japan-util.el: Use `characterp' instead of `integerp' while
defining char properties for katakana.
* mule/mule-category.el: Clear the category table before defining
categories for `predefined-category-list'.
* mule/mule-cmds.el (finish-set-language-environment): Fit the
charsets preferences in unicode conversions for the language
environment. Suggested by ARISAWA Akihiro <ari(a)mbf.sphere.ne.jp>.
Despite the date it was probably committed on 2002-08-02, and
definitely after the release of 21.5.8 on 2002-07-27. There were very
few Mule-related changes in the period you focus on. If it isn't that
one, it will take serious debugging.
Yes, this date matches. I seem to have build my first 21.5.8 on
2002-08-03 and it was already broken. Shall I get the last 21.5.7 from
CVS, build it and have a look if it works? Then we would know, that it
broke between 2002-07-27 and 2002-08-03.
