Well that has been fixed, but that was fixed before I took responsibility
for the emacs mode so this correction ought to be part of an official
release. It should be part of R8B according to or internal
information. It was a open source contribution. But until now there has
been a lack of somebody that has felt responsible for the erlang mode for
some while, so maybe this was not communicated.
