Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 245017
Revert broken in XEmacs (or file status?)
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:08 EST
Description of problem:
XEmacs incorrectly thinks a file is modified even if it was just reverted.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 21.5.28-2
How reproducible: 100%
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a text file, e.g., test.txt that contains some content.
2. Modify the file but do not save
3. Revert the file
4. Notice that the file status at the bottom of the window still says
"modified" even though you just reverted the file. The contents of the
file _is_ reverted, XEmacs just doesn't "realize it."
5. Close the buffer: XEmacs asks if you want to save the file as "it
has been modified"
Actual results: XEmacs thinks the file is modified even after revert
Expected results: XEmacs does not think the file has been modified

I think this has been reported upstream recently, but I just posted about it
again to xemacs-beta because the only related thing I could find was
http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.emacs.xemacs.beta/25004/focus=25015 (which I
suppose is related).
Confirmed as an upstream bug and fixed there:
The patch will be in xemacs >= 21.5.28-3 when released.
xemacs-21.5.28-3.fc7 has been pushed to the Fedora 7 testing repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
xemacs-21.5.28-3.fc7 has been pushed to the Fedora 7 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
The corresponding FE-6 update will be available shortly too, it's currently
