That would be around the time when emacs --daemon started "acting up" by
going into an unresponsive CPU-chewing loop whenever it asked a question
on the console during startup. I have to start Emacs these days by
starting a non-daemon Emacs, answering various questions (mostly from
desktop.el), quitting (and saving a fixed desktop file), then restarting
in daemon mode...
