*** Warning messages when running in Ubuntu
When you start Emacs you may see something like this:
(emacs:2286): LIBDBUSMENU-GTK-CRITICAL **: watch_submenu: assertion
`GTK_IS_MENU_SHELL(menu)' failed
This happens if the Emacs binary has been renamed. The cause it the Ubuntu
appmenu concept. It tries to track Emacs menus and show them in the top
panel, instead of in each Emacs window. This is not properly implemented,
so it fails for Emacs. The order of menus is wrong, and things like copy/paste
that depends on what state Emacs is in, is usually wrong (i.e. paste disabled
even if you should be able to paste, and similar).
You can get back menus on each frame by starting emacs like this:
* Runtime problems on character terminals
** The meta key does not work on xterm.
