I stand corrected.  Using 'emacs -q' shows the startup screen, and it does 
appear more durable than I remembered.  Good!

Now, I don't see anything in my .emacs that should prevent the startup screen 
from appearing, but it's not appearing.  How does Emacs decide whether to show 
the startup screen?  I know that if I ask to open a file immediately, it will 
not show the startup screen, but if I just invoke 'runemacs' (this is Windows), 
there is no startup screen or buffer, and I am presented with *scratch*.  Why 
isn't it showing the startup screen?

Thanks,
Mark
