i just noticed that two of the OP's responses, and my own subsequent
response to one of those, were only sent privately. With the permission
of the OP, i here reproduce these responses as support for closing this
bug.

Maybe it would be interesting to change the default behaviour for all people who ignore the option ?

You're welcome. :-)

Mm, i think it's best to leave it at the current size, for two reasons:

* Emacs is used in a wide variety of situations; not everyone is in a situation where they're running Emacs on a machine with multiple gigs of memory. i would suggest it's less inconvenient for someone to have to say "y" to opening a large file than for someone to have the 256M machine on which they're working hosed by a 300M log file that was opened without confirmation.

* Which value should be chosen is likely to result in bikeshedding, since different people with different experiences will have different ideas about what value is 'reasonable'.

So unless others feel a strong need to revisit the default value, i recommend closing this bug.
