Well, I am not sure but in my Debian system (yet potato)
it looks as follows and fine;

nsx:~$ /usr/sbin/update-alternatives --display xemacs
xemacs - status is auto.
 link currently points to /usr/bin/xemacs21
/usr/bin/xemacs21 - priority -10
 slave xemacs.1.gz: /usr/share/man/man1/xemacs.xemacs21.1.gz
/usr/bin/gnuclient.xemacs21 - priority -20
Current `best' version is /usr/bin/xemacs21.

nsx:~$ dpkg -l xemacs21-bin
ii  xemacs21-bin   21.1.10-1      Editor and kitchen sink -- support binaries

Does not 'update-alternatives --auto xemacs' fix the problem?

Best Regards,			2000.6.13
