The lowest Fload I found had a first arg of "uniquify", I do not know
how to decode the args of the Frequire calling it.  feature showed up
as 0, and filename as nil.  The next Fload higher up had an first arg
of "emacsrc".  Makes me think, does bootstrapping emacs read the
~/.emacsrc file I have?

May be we can speed up debugging by hooking up via IM or IRC, and you
provide me with lines I paste into the debugger, and I will paste back
