[I sent this message a few days ago but did not get a response.
Could we get the discussion moving again?]

    I am trying to use define-global-minor-mode, see below. I have 
    customized the global mode to be t, but when I open new buffers the 
    minor mode is not set in them. Is this a bug in define-global-minor-mode?

My impression is that the global mode defined with
define-global-minor-mode does not affect all buffers to be created in
the future.  It only catches buffers created by visiting files.

If so, I think what is needed is to add this to the documentation of

    Globally enabling the mode also affects buffers subsequently created
    by visiting files, but not buffers subsequently created in other ways.

Can anyone confirm that this is right?
