If everyone reading this who uses Emacs (probably a lot of people!) takes
a moment to do a bit of triage on the list you posted (thank you!), we
could make most of this go away, actually.  I started doing that since I
was curious how easy it would be and was able to resolve five or six bugs
as previously fixed in just a few minutes.

I'll do a bit more of that this morning before I have to go do other work.
