probably because you should have written «'dwim», i.e., with an initial
aprostophe. if you write «dwim», emacs thinks you're referring to the
variable named "dwim".[1] if you write «'dwim», you're telling emacs that you
mean the symbol named "dwim".

in lisp, that's a big difference... ;-)


[1] well, actually to the variable value of the symbol that is named "dwim".
