I have emacs open a certain large file at boot-time startup, because
the Python mode takes so long to parse it. So I guess I forgot to save
last night, did a windows shutdown, and this morning my work wasn't
there... but while emacs probably gave the warning, it was probably
wiped out by the next warning from the Python mode, and I don't sit
there and watch my computer boot up.  So by the time I noticed stuff
from last night was missing, the recover file had been rewritten with
the new edits.
If I understand you correctly (and I may not), you're saying that when
you open a Python file that has an auto-saved file, then Emacs says that
an auto-saved file exists...  and then Python mode issues a message that
overwrites that message?

What is that Python-mode message?


I think you understood correctly.  I'm not sure what version of which Python-mode I have, but could probably figure it out somehow (I love emacs, because it has extensions, but I'm not real good at writing or understanding elisp: I use other people's extensions, mostly, and a bit of cut-n-paste programming for a few more customizations).

Probably the following message, that I get every time I open the file.

"Warning: no abbrev-file found, customize `abbrev-file-name' in order to make mode-specific abbrevs work."

And I find the following line in my .emacs file:

(add-to-list 'load-path "d:/my/py/emacs/python-mode.el-6.1.1")
