I think backup-by-copying variable has to do with _hard_ links, not

Ah, yes! I first introduced 'backup-by-copying t' when I saw that my clever hard links changed a bit. Years later I found that block (a larger one, actually) and adopted it – with the original comments included. And that one comment is presumingly wrong...

Thanks! I'll make an update to my init file.



These are my principles and if you don't like them... well, I have others.
