Re: bug#1246: Bug : 23.0.60; "customize emacs" overwrites "custom-set-va

From: Bernhard Koenig
Subject: Re: bug#1246: Bug : 23.0.60; "customize emacs" overwrites "custom-set-variables" in .emacs
Date: Sat, 25 Oct 2008 14:27:35 -0400


I currently have Emacs 23.0.60 and downloaded it Oct 12 from the
Ubuntu repositories. I will paste my .emacs, at one point the
custom-set-variables were overwritten and the tex-output-view-style
settings were completely deleted. I can try to reproduce the bug later
