When you say the buffer is tied to an svn repository, do you mean you're
using emacs as your commit editor as in the following report?
If so, it's a bug in emacs-24.2 that has been fixed upstream for
emacs-24.3. If not, more details would be helpful.
If possible, please give a recipe for producing the problem, starting
with 'emacs -Q'. Also, say whether you're running emacs in a terminal
or under X. Finally, please attach cygcheck output as requested here:
