No problem :)

Aha, so it loads elisp files from that "site-start.d" directory.  I
wonder what files are placed there.  Could you look and show their
contents please?

Right, this is used to find emacs packages in "~/.guix-profile".  So,
for example, if you do "guix package -i magit", next time you run Guix's
Emacs, it will automatically find magit package, so you can use "M-x
magit-status" right away.

OK, note that I used "Mono" font while you probably prefer just "DejaVu

You know, I have another thought about this problem.  Perhaps you use
different versions of zenburn theme: like, for example, you installed
one using Fedora (which is loaded when you run Fedora's Emacs), and also
you installed another zenburn using Emacs package system (and it is
loaded by Guix's Emacs).  Could you look at 'load-path' variable ("C-h v
load-path") and check if there are several ".../zenburn..." directories.

Or better, look if zenburn is listed at "M-x list-load-path-shadows".

Also check the value of 'custom-enabled-themes'.

OK, at least this is solved now :-)
