Mine's set to nil too.

I actually forgot all about it until David raised the issue again.

It seems that several developers have set it to nil -- because it
a) doesn't really do any good, and
b) has bad effects on Emacs or the system as a whole

So it seems plain stupid to release it with a setting that will impact
and annoy users and cause a support burden after the release.

I agree that the default should be nil, and IMO a non-nil default
setting for this is a really serious bug.
