Smilies changing seemingly by themselves

Recently Gnus stopped picking up my modified smilies in
~/elisp/gnus/etc/smilies/ and started using the default xemacs-ones.

After some fiddling around, I discovered that `smiley-data-directory'
was being set to "/usr/share/xemacs21/xemacs-packages/etc/smilies/"
instead of the expected "/home/asjo/elisp/gnus/etc/smilies/".

This occurred because I updated the xemacs21-basesupport-package
(Debian) that contains the ..../xemacs-packages/etc/smilies/ directory
- and the setting of `smiley-data-directory' is done with the function
`nnheader-find-etc-directory' which finds the _newest_ etc-directory.

Does taking the newest directory instead of the first (in the
`load-path') make sense here?

Confused the hell out of me at least :-)
