Is there something peculiar about the Emacs included with RedHat?  Does
it set up using (custom-file) automatically?  My question to OP would be
"what else happened to your users' files?"  The only places Customize
has ever saved anything for me is in .emacs or (custom-file), which I
started using simply because it's nicer to look at my .emacs with the
Custom settings elsewhere.
