Hi, I recently got this message after starting Emacs daemon:

non-existent file ~/some/repo/index.org.. [R]emove from list or [A]bort?

1. It wasn't clear to me who issued this message; I thought it would
be recentf or tramp rather than org-mode. Maybe the message could give
some hint about the agenda: „non-existent agenda file …“

2. This question prevented emacs --daemon from starting
non-interactively; that's not nice. I think this minor question
shouldn't block emacs' startup. Maybe via (3.)

3. I don't mind if an agenda file doesn't exist. I have a different
set of .org files in each computer, and my org-agenda-files is a
superset of all. I would prefer a preference to request all
non-existing agenda files to be ignored.

Hi Daniel,

I think the real mistake here is that you call org-agenda,
or maybe `org-agenda-to-appt' from .emacs, also in the case when
you are only starting the daemon.  Any such operaions should
be avoided in the daemon, I think.

Silently ignoring non-existing files on the agenda list does
not seem a good idea to me. If you want to do this, you can do it lke this:

(eval-after-load "org"
  (setq org-agenda-files
        (delq nil (mapcar (if (file-exists-p file)

Make sure this runs after ou custom-file has been loaded.
(setq org-agenda-files (mapcar (if (file-exists-p file) file)
