Thanks, Emmanuel, that worked just fine.  I also tried changing
the setq-default in my init file to plain setq, and everything
worked fine.  Now I have to go through my init file and fix any
misused setq-defaults.  *sigh*  (My goal in using the hook was to
keep the fill-column limited to those modes derived from
text-mode.  I.e., I didn't want it to affect fundamental-mode.)

All these years of using Emacs, and I'm still pretty much a tyro
at Elisp.  Ah well, I learn.  Slowly, maybe, but I learn.
