Hi Phil.

Thanks for taking the time to think about this one. Here's my usual *Messages* buffer upon start-up:

        Loading disp-table...done
        Loading /Users/sebbyt/.xemacs/init.el (source)...done
        Loading /Users/sebbyt/.xemacs/custom.el (source)...done
        Loading dired...done
        Reading directory /Users/sebbyt/.Terminal_folder/...done
        Desktop loaded.
        For information about the GNU Project and its goals, type C-h C-p.

Seemingly no problem there. However within 'customize-group RET desktop' desktop-buffer-handlers says the following:

        Desktop Buffer Handlers: [Hide]
        [INS] [DEL] Function: desktop-buffer-dired
        [INS] [DEL] Function: desktop-buffer-rmail
        [INS] [DEL] Function: desktop-buffer-mh
        [INS] [DEL] Function: desktop-buffer-info
        [INS] [DEL] Function: desktop-buffer-file
           [State]: this option is unchanged from its standard setting.
        List of functions to call in order to create a buffer. [Hide]
        The functions are called without explicit parameters but can use the
        variables `desktop-buffer-major-mode', `desktop-buffer-file-name',
        If one function returns non-nil, no further functions are called.
        If the function returns t then the buffer is considered created.

I'm at a loss, not being a Lisp programmer, (or any sort of programmer for that matter), but I've established that the function desktop-buffer-file, (the last in the list), deals with restoring buffers that visit files in the correct major/minor modes etc.

Other things aren't working such as modes I've put in desktop-modes-not-to-save being ignored. But let's tackle one thing at a time hey!

Any ideas?
