I wonder if it's something quirky on this Win32 machine. I'm fairly new to Emacs but *really* like out-line minor mode and dynamic auto complete. Saves me a lot of time with a screen reader.

plugin for Lua is extremely out of date and has quite a number of
issues with both the syntax highlighting and the indentation magic.  I
had hoped to fix it and get a new one written at one point, but I no
longer use emacs so I don't see that happening any time soon.
