Re: enabling evaporation of overlays
Setting t to evaporate by default is rejected but RMS write
this should be done by each application. After thinking I agree
with this. I start to discuss abut how to deal evaporate of widget's
overlay in emacs-devel.
RMS wrote in emacs-devel:
I'd just like to add that mh-e also has this problem when displaying
mime buttons and parts. It was fixed by setting the overlay 'evaporate
property to t.
In any case it seems like a change for the better. Previously all the
gui-button faces would shrink to zero-length overlays and remain there,
invisible, when the buffer contents were deleted and new contents
inserted. I now see that a lot of overlays accumulated after may reuses
of the same buffer.
It sounds like THESE overlays should be set to evaporate.
But I think MH-E should do that. I cc'd the MH-E maintainer.
