	I realized I wasn't as clear as I could have been, especially
in view of that message.  The frame actually pops up (with visible
text), and I can even type into the scratch buffer and save files;
xemacs crashes when I try to read a file.  (The crash I reported in
the previous message happened when I did ^X^F ~/.vm, but the same
thing happens with any file I've tried.)

	I did check with -nw, and the crash is the same.  I can try
turning on the xft flag if you think it's still interesting.
