Is that from temacs?  Was you existing emacs compiled without ASLR
turned on?

I checked emacs22 sources that I had handy and etc/PROBLEMS explicitly
says that emacs will not compile on RedHat with ASLR and/or
exec-shield (whatever that is).

From what I used to know about emacs undump, this is to be expected
(as I already pointed out in another email).

I'm actually suprised that it used to work before with ASLR but
without Joerg's commit.  Or did I misunderstand?
