Hello all,

I only can speak for the ECB-side: I do not use BBDB and have also no BBDB 
installed so i can not test your problems. But in generel i would strongly 
recommend not to activate ECB during using Gnus, BBDB or other tools which have 
an own window-management in any kind. ECB advices a lot of functions like 
switch-to-buffer, other-window, split-window-..., delete-window... when called 
in the ecb-frame (in all other frames the functions behave as the originals)

I'm using Gnus in an own Emacs-instance not started with gnuserv/gnuclientw! 
All other emacsen i start with gnuserv/gnuclientw so there is no conflict 
between them. All files are opened in the not-Gnus-Instance of Emacs.

Summary: Do not use Gnus and BBDB in combination with ECB. ECB has two options 
ecb-major-modes-activate and ecb-major-modes-deactivate which maybe can be used 
in a senseful way to autom. Deactivate ECB if a Gnus or BBDB buffer is selected 
and reactivates ECB after selecting any other buffer. But i have not tested 
this scenario...

Betreff: [Ecb-list] Problems with ECB and BBDB/Gnus

Hello All,

Sorry for the cross post, but I didn't know which group to post to for this 
one.  I'm having a hard time using the ECB (1.80) with BBDB.  I am using layout 
number 12.  With the BBDB popping up their window when I select a message with 
a known user, I get the window, but it's a short article buffer.  I move in the 
summary buffer to another mail article, and I hit enter, and get another window 
(within the main (on the right) ECB window).  None of which display the BBDB. 

On the left the methods buffer looks fine. Then below that, *there* is the BBDB 
buffer, below that, a copy of the main buffer (I see this message there).  
Below that a *Group* buffer, and the history buffer looks fine.

I find myself constantly deactivating and reactivating the ECB buffer.  I the 
ECB with BBDB and Gnus, just not usable, or is there something awry with the 
generic setup?

I'm using NTEmacs 21.2 on WinXP Pro, ECB 1.80, BBDB 2.34, Gnus 5.9.  I did try 
to launch Gnus in another frame, but everytime I sent a new source module to 
Emacs, it ended up (most of the time) in my Gnus frame.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
