Yes, auto-loads.el contains autoloads.  Along with six ^L page breaks
at the end of the file.

Well, a beep is issued when XEmacs aborts which might scare people
that something went wrong.  That's actually the cause that I noticed
this oddity at all.

Maybe we could make XEmacs fail more often and thereby letting it play
"Freude, schöner Götterfunken".  This way the error would appear more
"intentional".  In case we cannot modify the pitch of the beeps,
letting it beep "no worries, everything is fine" in morse code could
do as well. (c;
