another way to diagnose “.emacs” problem is to comment out half of the
file then restart. If still problem, then comment out half more, else,
switch the last commented/uncommented. So each time, you narrow down
my half. After just very few tries, you'll find your problem location.
(on algorithmic efficiency, this is 1/2^n hehe)
