This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
not to your local site managers!
Please write in English, because the Emacs maintainers do not have
translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list,
and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.

In GNU Emacs 21.1.1 (i586-pc-linux-gnu, X toolkit, Xaw3d scroll bars)
 of 2001-10-23 on amneris
configured using `configure  --prefix=/home/swann/packages/emacs'
Important settings:
  value of $LC_ALL: nil
  value of $LC_COLLATE: nil
  value of $LC_CTYPE: nil
  value of $LC_MESSAGES: nil
  value of $LC_MONETARY: nil
  value of $LC_NUMERIC: nil
  value of $LC_TIME: nil
  value of $LANG: en_US
  locale-coding-system: iso-latin-1
  default-enable-multibyte-characters: t

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

I have both a ~/.emacs (read by emacs-19, not much used now) and a
~/.emacs.el (read by emacs-21).  When in emacs 21 and I ask for a
description of a function I have defined via C-h f I get e.g.

afs-jump-to-notes-index is an interactive compiled Lisp function in `~/.emacs'.

saying the function is defined in ~/.emacs, which is true but it is not the
definition emacs-21 has read, which was in ~/.emacs.el .  Indeed clicking
on ~/.emacs in this message, correctly takes me to ~/.emacs.el .  The Help
message needs to be corrected.
