customize apparently (still) adds text to .emacs.elc rather than .emacs

Subject: customize apparently (still) adds text to .emacs.elc rather than .emacs

This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
 not to your local site managers!!
Please write in English, because the Emacs maintainers do not have
translators to read other languages for them.

In GNU Emacs 20.7.1 (rs6000-ibm-aix4.3.3.0, Motif)
 of Mon Nov 20 2000 on neon.rchland.ibm.com
configured using `configure  
--prefix=/afs/rch/rel/common/prod/ct/local/200011/rs_aix43 --with-x 
--with-x-toolkit=motif'

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

- I have both .emacs and .emacs.elc files.
- "customize" settings saved for future settings are put (apparently) as text.
  into the .emacs.elc file rather than into the .emacs file.
- I think I reported this bug back on version 20.5a.

- customize saves correctly if only a .emacs file exists.  I will use this
  workaround.

- By the way, I did not test if the problem occurs if the .emacs file is named
  .emacs.el.
