I usually use xemacs in a separate window, so these things don't bother me,
either. But, it does have issues with xemacs -nw. One annoying thing is
that even if you have the menu bar hidden, m-f, m-e, m-h, etc., still pop up
the menus instead of getting sent to the app. I guess I could see where
that could be useful, but when you're wrapping a console window you can't
assume you can have any keys for yourself, or you need a way to turn on and
off if they get passed through.
