Recently I upgraded my Gnus package from 1.45 to 1.50. After that,
suddenly I cannot see any Japanese characters in the *Summary* buffer.
All the characters became '~' now. The *Article* buffer still works
I tried xemacs -vanilla and the problem disappeared, so I tracked down
the reason and finally found that (load "mime-setup") caused the
problem. Without it, Gnus shows Japanese perfectly. I believe that I
need mime-setup in the previous version of Gnus.
It seems that new Gnus (5.8.7?) now has its own MIME functions, and I
guess some tweaks in mime-setup conflict with them.
Currently I don't need tm (I used it only for the old Gnus), so it is
okay for me to eliminate mime-setup. But there should be someone who
need mime-setup for other applications. I don't really know about the
detail of interactions between tm and Gnus, but I guess some
treatments should be done for the new Gnus package.
Oh, I used mime-setup in tm-1.23-pkg. I believe it is the latest one.
