After upgrade to squeeze, I have the following emacs curiosity. I bind C-xC-c to: (defun ctrlxctrlc () "Careful exit from emacs" (interactive) (if (y-or-n-p "Do you really want to exit emacs? ") (save-buffers-kill-emacs) (message "") )) to avoid accidentally closing emacs. Under squeeze, for all three versions of emacs (21, 22,23) if I do C-xC-c and then respond y to the prompt, emacs closes and a y is sent to the xterm that launched emacs! Any ideas?
