Jean-Louis, Mike, do either of you have an objection to me marking
this bug as "deferred"?  That means it's acknowledged as an XEmacs bug
that we "should" fix, but no current developer has interest/expertise/
platform access sufficient to fix it.

I'm assuming that --with-xim=no is a satisfactory workaround for you,
Jean-Louis.  If not, please do "object"!

OK.  I'm planning to implement a "busy-body" feature where people can
sign up for auto-add to nosy-list on new issues matching some
criterion.  Maybe a simple grep on the body for mention of "Solaris"
would work.

Agreed.  I think that's kind of implicit in the Assigned status (and
we can hope that we can train users to do a little sanity checking for
the verified state).
