Sorry for the noise, I forgot to keep address@hidden

Hello Glenn.

Sorry I missed that bug report.  Could both reports be merged?

Your recommendation works, but only if the order is:
(require 'eshell)
(with-eval-after-load "eshell" (insert "Eshell was loaded.\n")

When the order is:
(with-eval-after-load "eshell" (insert "Eshell was loaded.\n")
(require 'eshell)

The string is inserted twice, because eshell is loaded twice.

Is the former order recommended over the latter? Mandatory?  I can't
find that information on the manual.

Of course, if I eval (starting from emacs -Q):
(with-eval-after-load 'eshell (insert "Eshell was loaded.\n")
And then type `M-x eshell' I get the repeated string inserted, because
again, eshell is loaded twice.

Anyway, my recipe was meant to provide evidence that eshell gets loaded
twice.  That still happens, either eshell-load-hook or
with-eval-after-load is used in real code.  It would be good to solve
that double loading.  That way, either eshell-load-hook (until it is
obsoleted, if it eventually happens) or with-eval-after-load (any order
of execution) can be used.


Best Regards,
Mauro.
