Good point.

Using that works without any problems.  Thanks.

I'm loading the bookmark file because it doesn't work otherwise.  If I
just do:

(add-hook 'emacs-startup-hook '(lambda () (bookmark-jump "TODO")))

Then Emacs gives an error "Invalid Bookmark TODO".  It seems that the
bookmarks are loaded after emacs-startup-hook, which is odd.  If I load
them before it works though.
