c-mode customisations I've been using for decades no longer work. In

particular, nothing I do in ~/.emacs will set c-cleanup-list to my

preferences, including space-before-funcall. Right after I installed a

new OS with a new version of emacs, it contained only scope-operator;

now, after a lot of tinkering, it comes up as "c-cleanup-list's value is

set-from-style". Either way, it utterly ignores the value set in

custom-set-variables, a line in

(add-hook 'c-mode-hook

(function (lambda ()


(add-to-list 'c-cleanup-list 'space-before-funcall


and a direct

(setq c-cleanup-list (quote (brace-else-brace brace-elseif-brace empty-defun-braces defun-close-semi list-close-comma scope-operator space-before-funcall compact-empty-funcall)))

Likewise (setq c-electric-pound-behavior (quote (alignleft))) and

'(c-electric-pound-behavior (quote (alignleft))) in custom-set-variables

does nothing at all.

Any hints? Nothing I've found on the net, including the suggestion from

the cc-mode manual

;; Create my personal style.
