Again, do you use Custom at all?  The user's custom-file contains
customizations made _by the user_.  It is loaded at startup.  If it
overrides options set by the user in his .emacs, the user's .emacs has
a bug, because he made conflicting customizations.  Only the user
knows what he really wants and it is up to the user to resolve the
conflict.  No reason for Emacs to worry about anything.

A custom theme file is often not written by the user and contains
suggested customizations which should _not_ override customizations
made explicitly by the user, whether through Custom (which it
_already_ does not override right now) or outside Custom.  It should
also not override values that are essential for certain Emacs
features to function correctly.  But I am repeating things I already
wrote in my previous message and to which you did not respond at all.
