Now, if I open a lot of files (i.e. more tabs than fit in the
buffer tabs area), it appears to me as if the least recently opened
files' tabs go into a kind of "second buffer tabs list". When switching
back (via C-x b) to a buffer whose tab is currently not visible, I see
this "second list", i.e. the tab of the selected buffer tab and the
other tabs formerly not displayed.
But instead I would expect to see the tab of the selected buffer added
to the currently displayed tabs and the least recently visited buffer's
tab removed from the visible tabs in order to "make room" for the tab of
the selected buffer. In other words: Always display the tabs of the most
recently used buffers.
I ran into this same bug and found out that automatic font-lock-mode
with that verbose thing on causes this.
You should be able to reproduce this by making the font-lock-mode with
that verbose thing on to come on automatically and then open few
buffers with that, for example foo1.c and foo2.c. Now the one you
opened last should be the rightmost and without that font-lock-mode's
verbose stuff it would be the leftmost.
At least this is what I ran into. I think that I will leave that
verbose setting off. :-) I have the latest cvs-version of xemacs.
