Strange XEmacs behaviour



Hi.  I'm using xemacs19_19.16-1.deb from unstable (yeah, I know, I
should be using the stable one... but I like living dangerously) and
I've been having strange problems off and on, namely:

1) It can't find its info files when I do C-h C-c, C-h F, and so on. (I
get "Info file xemacs-faq does not exist" - though I know quite well
that it does!)  This was happening before... then it fixed itself
mysteriously, which I thought had to do with me running makedev on my
new filesystem, though there's no logical reason that I can think of why
this would be so.  Anyway, now it's happening again.

2) Now, all of a sudden, its keysyms are screwed up such that even
though every other X client recognizes the left-alt key as Meta, when I
try to do any one of the multitude of M-x ... commands in XEmacs, I get
 "A-x not defined". It must have to do with keysyms because it only
 happens in X11.  However, problem (1) also happens in text mode.

My system is pretty mixed up... so maybe it's my fault!  Salient
details include: libc6_2.0.5c-0.1, libc5.4.33-7, xlib6g_3.3.1-2,
xlib6_3.3.1-2 (with /usr/i486-linuxlibc1/lib/X11 as a symlink to
/usr/X11R6/lib/X11 in order to fix app-defaults problems) and most of
the base system from hamm.

Anyway, I hope I'm not wasting too much bandwidth here... any help would
be greatly appreciated, 'cause I like XEmacs, but it's pretty
useless without working on-line help and a Meta key! :)

Cheers
