I've seen this problem several times too, but did not know there was a
bug report and an upstream solution already. Does an upstream/backport
patch for emacs23 exist? in case not the severity of that bug should be
much higher than normal as it is now! I have had several files corrupted
due to this bug (fortunately being able to recover them).
