Yeah.  When I first made Emacs 22 available in Debian, I got lots of
reports from users who thought that it was a bug that Emacs showed
the splash screen instead of their file.  At some point I even
considered changing the default value of `inhibit-splash-screen' to
avoid getting those reports (but I didn't).
