Ah, thanks. Sorry, I did not understand that you make a clean checkout
every time.

I would be glad if anyone could point to something there that could
possibly break Emacs' advice machinery. (I am not sure anything there
does, but as one can see in bug report
https://bugs.launchpad.net/nxhtml/+bug/369800 for nXhtml something
related to the snap-shots breaks it.)
