Yes, it worked for me, too.  :-(

That was my problem.  I didn't know about
help-enable-completion-auto-load (which says it was new in 26.3).  I
think I will disable this in my .emacs - it seems it will cause me more
problems than it will help.  I've always used C-h f and C-h v to see an
Elisp file's autoloads.  Thanks for the tip!.

Ah, so that's it.  Thanks!
