This is a followup message to point to an explanation of the problem cited in
this thread, which a couple of Bookmark+ users ran into.  I have updated the
Bookmark+ doc to warn about it:

See also Emacs bug #12503:

The bottom line is this: if you have bookmarks that you created using Bookmark+
then use Bookmark+, not vanilla Emacs, to access them.

Or if you will often be going back and forth between using Bookmark+ and using
vanilla Emacs, then customize option `bmkp-propertize-bookmark-names-flag' to

Setting the option to nil means you will forego being able to use multiple
bookmarks that have the same name, which is particularly useful for "autofiles".

An autofile is a bookmark whose name is the nondirectory part of the targeted
file name.  If the option is non-nil then you can have different autofiles in
different directories but with the same name.

You can use autofiles pretty much the same way you use files in Emacs, even
though they are actually bookmarks.  Because they are bookmarks, with Bookmark+
you can do things like tag them in various ways (a la Delicious).
