Argh, it just happened again with 5.17a! And it was definitely only
(and all) the prefix key documentation entries which vanished, such as
("#" . "TODOs by priority")
Additionally I have been most careful to regularly save customizations
since the discussion above, so I'm now sure that there is a bug
somewhere after all; I just don't know how to trigger it. Is the
defcustom definition for prefix key documentation definitely correct?
