Ah, I am using a single semicolon!  I have never heard of that behavior
before, and I don't remember seeing that in XEmacs (but I started with an
extensive init.el from one of the daddy rabbits which may be the reason).

I'll see if a double-semicolon changes the behavior. BTW, do you know how
to change that behavior?

Thanks, Alexis.

Cheers!
