I updated all my Jedmodes scripts. (But cannot test, as I do not have
SLang >= 2.0.1)

Problematic ones in the Jedmodes CVS are now

  email.sl
  fileview.sl
  info.sl
  infospace.sl
  ispell_common.sl
  keywords.sl
  menutils.sl
  pcre.sl
  rfcview.sl
  snake.sl
  yodl.sl
  
Shall I update them as well?
