emacs in run level 3 then switch to X (level 7) then back to level 3
This is a frustrating problem for me. I like to sometimes use the iso-8859-3 font set in Emacs for writing in Esperanto. It works well in a text console in run level 3; however, as soon as I start an X session something happens such that if I return to run level 3 either by ending X completely or by <ctl><alt><F3>, I can no longer see the iso-8859-3 characters correctly in run level 3. After creating a file in emacs with Esperanto characters, I can display them on my text terminal with for example "less filename". After starting X, I can never again return to a text console outside of X and see the Esperanto characters correctly without rebooting the system. If I reboot, everything's back to normal in run level 3; that is until I start an X session again. It should be said that I can see the characters correctly in X even when they aren't showing correctly in run level 3. So I guess I have two questions. 1) what's happening? and 2) How can I reset my run level 3 session without a reboot?
Another tidbit: I tried creating an Esperanto document in emacs in level3; I left it on the screen; then switched to a second level 3 virtual terminal (<alt><F2> and from there started X (startx). From X I switched to my first level 3 terminal that had emacs still running on it, and I find my Esperanto characters all boogered up. Other text is fine though.
Any ideas would be welcomed. I'm running Slac 10.2 with the 126.96.36.199 kernel. I've updated packages to 10.2/current. Everything else seems to be running really well. I'm using a Dell i8600. Thanks --Douglas
