Yes, I am now really confused. Looks like I missed the booting out of the whitespace.el that I wrote. I did see that the whitespace-buffer was behaving differently, but chalked it up to me being tired late at night.

I gather that Richard wanted the new functionality to use the
"whitespace" name, which makes some sense, but it seems seems to have
been done rather clumsily in some cases.  E.g. the new
"whitespace-buffer" command seems completely different than the old
"whitespace-buffer" command, and really there seems no good reason for
it.  [It's more or less a mode, but isn't called "...-mode", doesn't
follow emacs mode conventions well, e.g., it doesn't togglex, and
there's _also_ "whitespace-mode" which offers different, but related,
