Answer to Paul van Wamelen

About pari.el version 2.24 :

A mistake I corrected in my own version but I forgot to patch the
distributed version...

Same as above. pari.el is supposed to be cleverer than before: you can enter
  ? aux=65;/* First variable
              used */ aux+5
and emacs will understand you are within a commented area. Same with
  ? aux=44;\\ Still the same variable
Since I'm doing just now some modification on pari.el, if you do not
want to see the output of a command, momentarily use
  ? big_output;0
which will only print 0. No such trick being accessible for the timer,
a patch will come on Wednesday (you can set it via a file though ...).
Sorry for that.

Which is how it should work. Space is allowed in help like in
"elliptic curve" and TAB/C-i is what triggers completion in gp-mode and
in gp-script-mode, so it has been extended to the mini-buffer also.
I should have made the correction mode-local though, which I'll try
to do.

  My guess is that echo troubles may have dispeared.
  News on Wednesday then !
