Well, I think technically XEmacs is right, it's just that no other
programs care. Somewhere in some manual it says to make alt generate meta
in a way that produces this problem (I'm assuming you have a PC and not a
Sparc or something with a real Meta key). I don't understand it fully,
But you can make the error go away with something like this to Xmodmap:
! Alt = Meta
keycode 0x40 = Meta_L
keycode 0x71 = Meta_R
add Mod1 = Meta_L Meta_R
There may be a better way, I don't get along with Xmodmap too well.
