comment How to prevent the “Symbol's function definition is void: error” when running emacs in the console?
Ok, now how about M-x find-library simple RET - that should take you to where Emacs is installed, then C-x C-d to open a dired, and in that directory there should be a scroll-bar.elc. Though the directions might fail if the Emacs wasn't installed with source lisp code...

Very odd. Ok, next test is running Emacs w/out your .emacs, emacs -nw -q, and then in the scratch buffer, type (scroll-bar-mode -1)C-j and see if you get an error. That function is distributed with Emacs in the scroll-bar.el package, so I'm guessing your .emacs has something odd, or the Emacs wasn't installed properly.

Emacs probably gave you a Warnings buffer telling you to run emacs with the --debug-init option to get a complete error backtrace. Try that and add that information to the question. Along with the Emacs version M-x emacs-version. That chunk of code works just fine with Emacs 23.2.

(toggle-scroll-bar -1) works just fine in emacs -nw for Emacs 23.2...

comment Deleting slow on X11 emacs
@Malvolio I updated the answer to provide xor, and you might need to leave the cut-function as nil for a while.

comment Emacs protection against simultaneous editing by same user
@PeterEisentraut If both Emacs are just viewing the file, there's no need. As soon as they modify the file, Emacs will warn (before saving, just modifying will trigger the warning).
