I run GAP3 gap-mode in emacs 19.34.
It works; the comint mode I use might be not the one that
is distributed with emacs 19, though.
You can download a copy of teh comint.el I use to try from

(it's a bit too big to post here.)

My understanding was that in the standard distro of emacs 19,
the comint mode is somehow broken. I got mine with a
distribution of one of Scheme implementations, as far as I
remember now.

I'm planning to investigate how this goes with emacs 20.4.
(and with GAP4).
