Unquestionably so.
However, if it's of any interest, now I've got it working it's
printing out each month with whatever holiday it can find (despite me
having an empty diary file). It never used to do that; every line of
every month used to be blank. Don't know if that tells you anything.

I'm running a stock download as I haven't the skill to customise
anything. I'm barely able to set a variable in .emacs. I haven't
knowingly changed anything.

And suddenly things are working sensibly. When I do M-x diary I get

    diary-check-diary-file: Diary file `~/diary' does not exist

instead of the lispy error, and when I try to dump the months from the
calendar without a diary file it says

    diary-list-entries: Opening input file: no such file or directory,
c:/+++to_backup+++/to_backup/DVD 08-07-30/emacs_home/diary

- it does not give me any grief about permissions. And I have no clue
whatsoever what's changed to make it work. I diffed my current emacs
home dir with an older one - no significant difference. I've no idea.

Well, given a) it's fixed itself b) I know how to fix it if it happens
again c) no-one else has ever reported this, I suggest closing this
bug as user error.

thank you for taking the time to look into this
