The version I'm current using is commit "b46489" which I'm not sure should have
the fix for the first problem. But it seems to be working better now except that
there are still issues:

- make emacs
- C-h k M-. (This splits horizontally into two windows with the original one on
- the left side and a help window on the right side.
- Type "i"
- Type "aaa"
- Type ESC
- Type "a"
- Type "bbb"
- Type ESC
- Type "."
- Type "C-." a few more times and you will get the buffer messed up

Let's see how it goes

Also I noticed that "M-." never has any effect, maybe I'm missing anything here?

Thank you very much for your hard working.
