Some notes on the Help here ... the help on edebug-defun didn't make
it clear *how* to select the top-level form on which it acts; the xref
to eval-defun did help me out, but it'd be worth using eval-defun's
more helpful wording

   Evaluate the top-level form containing point, or after point.

in the edebug-defun text.

Now all I have to do is find the definition of recover-session-finish;
help tells me it's in `files'.  Is there a convenient elisp mechanism
for discovering the path of the file (load '...) actually reads ?  I
resorted to "locate files.el" and discover that the file I need is
/usr/share/emacs/21.2/lisp/files.elc, so this isn't urgent ...

I take it I *can* use the debugger, in particular edebug-defun, on a
compiled .elc file ?  Not that I'm going to understand the results *at
all* ... but I can probably manage to report them.
