auto-fill-mode turned on in all buffers


From: Kevin L. Mitchell
Subject: auto-fill-mode turned on in all buffers
Date: Thu, 25 Aug 2005 11:42:38 -0400

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 21.3.1 (i386-redhat-linux-gnu, X toolkit, Xaw3d scroll bars)

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

I wish I knew.  Every once in a while, I suddenly find that *all*
buffers in my emacs session suddenly have auto-fill-mode turned on,
even though I did not turn it on.  This applies even to brand new
files.  This state of affairs continues until I give up looking for
what option or variable has been changed and restart emacs.  While I
find auto-fill-mode useful in some contexts, I would rather decide
*myself* which buffers it should be turned on in, and when!  The only
constant seems to be toggling auto-fill-mode in some buffers.  I
typically use auto-fill-mode for entering documentation comments in .c
files, but have it turned off for other comments.  I also turn it on
for ChangeLog comments and some text mode buffers and LaTeX buffers.
I always use M-x auto-fill-mode to toggle it.  I have never noticed
exactly when it ends up getting turned on for everything, and wish I
could get emacs to actually tell me what caused this!

(*sigh* can you tell I'm frustrated?)
