I guess emacs-"no x" does not see X, thus does not know that you have no
Meta bound to any modifier. Alt is not Meta. (The X variant run in its
own window will most likely see that you have no Meta and translate
your Alt to Meta, judging from what ratpoison does and that the comments
says it got this behaviour from emacs).
