I'm not yet convinced that there's a bug. The tpu-*.el files use the
emacs variable 'window-system' to decide whether X windows is running.
If I start emacs under X, that variable has the value x. If I run emacs
-nw in an xterm, the variable has the value nil. If I run emacs under
rxvt (without specifying -nw), I get the message
Display :0 unavailable, simulating -nw
and again window-system has the value nil. This strikes me as the
correct behavior, consistent with the documentation of '-nw'.
I guess what's puzzling is why Tim doesn't have a problem with earlier
versions of emacs. Has something changed in how emacs interprets -nw?
Or has tpu-edt changed? Maybe Eli can clarify this.
