Hi guys, Long time no chat. I'm still using xemacs 21.4. Thanks
I noticed the main web page https://www.xemacs.org/
still lists the stable
release as xemacs-21.4.22 but on the ftp site 21.4.24 is available.

user: Jerry James <james(a)xemacs.org>
date: 2016-06-03 09:30 -0600
Fix M-x shell under tcsh on Linux.
which is a likely fix for my problem, but not in any 21.4. release (please
I can attempt to commit it, but please confirm it fixes your issue first.
