Hello all:
I originally posted this mail to the ecb list thinking that ecb was the cause of the problem. Since then I have narrowed it down to a semantic. I will follow up with another mail reporting my results, but first I thought I'd just post this as is.



#############################
I'm using ecb-2.2.5 and cedet-1.0beta2b.
I'm using mic-paren.el
#############################

I've just noticed the following behavior, but I'm not sure if it is ecb or cedet related...so let me start with this list first.


I have ecb deactivated and my cursor is directly after the closing paren in the require statement shown below.

(require 'ecb-autoloads)

What I see is the following in the echo-are:

Matches:   (require 'ecb-autoloads) [496]

The (require 'ecb-autoloads) is displayed in the echo-area with the text-properties(font-lock faces) from the original buffer. Everything seems to work fine.



Now I activate ecb. This is where a see something bizarre. When I put my cursor right after that same closing paren, I see the same behavior...at least for a few seconds. After a few seconds, the text-properties seem to disappear (sometimes completely and sometimes partially)...it is no longer displayed with "faces/colors." This is not good. :-)


This only happens when ecb is active. With ecb off I have never seen this nor can I reproduce it.

I have ruled out my ecb settings by removing any customizations.


Thanks.
Javier
