im guessing that some small detail could have been wrong.

The small detail is PK – this word is used somewhere in your .emacs files.

If you copy the contents of the *Backtrace* buffer into the *scratch* buffer you can then find a long and not clipped line that might contain a comment like:

        ; Reading at buffer position 12345

Now you can open the faulty ELisp file and execute:

        M-x goto-char RET 12345 RET

and the cursor is at the position where the error happens. Well, mostly. Sometimes, often, this position is at the end of a large if or progn clause ...



If all else fails read the instructions.
