Emacs menu configuration creates broken .emacs
Last modified: 2007-04-18 13:00:08 EDT
Description of problem:
When customizing the default face, Emacs creates a broken .emacs.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. From the "Options" menu, go to "Customize Emacs", then "Specific
Face...". Enter "default".
2. Change the font family to "lucidatypewriter", and the size to "100".
3. Press the "Save for Future Sessions" button.
4. Exit and restart Emacs.
When loading .emacs on startup, Emacs complains:
An error has occurred while loading `/home/bmcdaniel/.emacs':
error: "Variable binding depth exceeds max-specpdl-size"
A working .emacs.
Presumably you mean RHL9, not FC1?
Could you please test this with Emacs 21.3?
Presumably I did mean RH9. Now I'm running FC1 with Emacs 21.3, and I
cannot reproduce the problem.
