Okay, I found a work-around for the first problem, but ran into another:

In the process of a system upgrade, I pulled in last week's
~/.emacs.desktop.  And, yes, I upgraded emacs to v.23.1.1.  Now I get
this error when emacs loads:

Debugger entered--Lisp error: (void-variable Í)
  (desktop-create-buffer Í "/home/mine/file2open.html" "file2open.html"
(quote html-helper-mode) (quote (auto-fill-mode abbrev-mode)) 5535
(quote (nil nil)) nil nil (quote (...)))
  eval-buffer(#<buffer  *load*> nil "/home/zl/.emacs.desktop" nil t)  ;
Reading at buffer position 1139
"/home/zl/.emacs.desktop" t t)
  load("/home/zl/.emacs.desktop" t t t)
  #[nil "      ƒ

Anyone know how to fix this?  If so, much appreciated.
