It was by default, I did not set them up.  Simply loaded a bash file,

called `M-x outline-minor-mode` and lines starting with `*` were

considered as headings.  This screws up shell scripts.  This problem

should be fixed so headings must start with `#` first.

The header hierarchy functionality is available, so I do not see 

how one can disregard a such a problem, advising people not to

use it. 

I went to the doctor because my thumb hurts.  He told me not to use it !
