I have to correct myself. After installation there is no ~/.emacs yet. If
I change an option in emacs and choose to save it, it is written. Fine so
far. If I restart emacs and try to save options a second time, it shows me
a message stating that it was invoked with -q option and that saving would
override existing configuration.

If I replace the generated .emacs with the file mentioned before,
containing only "(display-time)", it won't get loaded - the time is not
shown in the status bar.

Any ideas on this?
