I've been having a very frustrating time trying to install CEDET in w32 Emacs 
version 1.52 (with patches).  Here's what I did.

1. Downloaded the latest CEDET build from into 

2. Following the instructions here: I 

   C:\dev\Emacs\emacs\bin\emacs -Q -l cedet-build.el -f cedet-build

3. This seemed to work up until set 6:

Step 1: Byte compile EIEIO...not needed
    Step 2: EDE Autloads...done.
    Step 3: Semantic Autloads...done.
    Step 4: SRecode Autloads...done.
    Step 5: Load common/cedet.el ...done
    Step 6: Turning on EDE ...

4. I got an error message: Wrong type argument: number-or-marker-p, (768 8 . 

The same thing occurs whenever I evaluate (global-ede-mode 1) now.  I'm no 
emacs expert, so I'm not certain how to find where the error is actually 
occurring; I see 18 calls to this predicate in the CEDET source, though.

Can anyone help?  I'll append the text of *Messages* after error occurs.
