I hadn't realized fully the consequences. I apologize for this and I hope that it won't turn any user against each other. I must confess that among the mailing-lists I have subscribed to, this mailing list is the most cordial. Yes using both the `custom-set-variables` section and setting variable can introduce confusion. I am sure many of us have fallen prey to (counting me many times). At the same time it is convenient for some people to be able to customize easily some variable and some users might use custom-set-variables exclusively. We just need to understand the consequences of it and I guess many users of emacs eventually come to do with these two options and even use the best of both world modifying directly variables in the init files and using the custom-set-variables section. It is a bug? I wouldn't say so. Can we explain to (new) users better about it? Probably. Best regards, Jeremie
