This crash only seems to occur when I use different key maps on the two
hosts (the one that XEmacs runs on and the one that gnuclient gets
displayed on). Also, I have taken the liberty of sending another
backtrace, where the above anonymous compiled function does not occur.
So, I'm still hoping this can be resolved.
