Could you please take this a little bit more precise? I vaugely remember the
discussion, but not the details. It looks to me that there is a mixing of
things. Why should :initialize execute :set if it only is for the purpose of
initializing something, but not actually setting the symbol value? Should
not that code then be in :initialize?
