I too have this experience on a new setup  on RedHat 9.  The emacspeak
version on RH9 is only 17 which I am running now till everything else

laptop.  A Toshiba Satellite (model unknown) if this helps.

The problem happens right after a cold booting of the machine and I am

I chased down CVS versions of URL and W3 and installed them.  This
works fine too but will not start during the same session as the first
starting of emacspeak after a boot.  Supposing this might be due to
