same for me . havent grok everything yet. but thats a big steps between  a

that was in fact my point.

on mandrake 7.1/7.2 and +, the skeletons deosnt works.
 i got the message symbol's fnction definition is void: deactivate-mark.
(working in previous build)

i suspect its an emacs packaing issue, but in case somebody knows something

any nice wizardry ?
