Looking at the package, it is written in a very unhealthy way: all the
code is in one top level expression with an autoload cookie before it.
At the end that means that this package performs changes to your
settings even when you don't load it.

Dunno how you installed and "disabled" it, but it's better to get rid of
it.  If you like some of its settings, you can just copy them to your
init file.


Michael.
