      That makes sense. I'll see if that can be fixed.

      For me it works fine by setting 'keymap' to the same value again. I tried
      this with the "accents" file that I included.

      If you think the problem is not in your keymap file, try setting the 'verbose'
      option to find out if the file is actually read.

      Why not reload the keymaps at the moment 'encoding' is changed? You are not
      supposed to change it very often anyway. All the text in registers and loaded
      buffers becomes invalid.

      Despite the cost of living, have you noticed how it remains so popular?
