Test that it's non-nil, you mean?  I guess that could work, though I
don't know enough about the startup sequence to know whether
`init-file-user' being non-nil implies that `custom-file' or
`user-init-file' will be available later on.

Not sure if there was when I installed F7 originally, but there
certainly is now.  I upgraded, but the problem persists.

Can anyone think of a better temporary work-around than using
--no-site-file, which is obviously less than ideal?
