The problem is that suppresses the splash screen unconditionally, whereas
I at any rate like to see the splash screen if Emacs is started without
specifying a file.  I asked a question similar to the OP's a while ago,
and got the following suggestion for .emacs from Sven Joachim:

(when (> (length command-line-args) 1)
  (setq inhibit-splash-screen t))

(There were other more complex suggestions from other people, but the above
works fine for my purposes.)
