    This is really not that much different from the contents
    of "tramp-theme-autoloads.el" -- the only difference being
    setting up a separate location for the `custom-variables'
    from not being placed, by default, in the ".emacs" file.

    I put only this in my ".emacs", as you instructed.

    This works, but only if this is the only tramp-theme.el related
    thing that is in your .emacs file, which it is, initially.

    The problem arises when you have the `custom-variables' that
    tramp-theme.el creates automatically in your .emacs file
    (or a separate custom-file, if you configure the "custom-file"

    This is what tramp-theme.el automatically created:

Attachment: custom
Description: tramp-theme.el custom info

    After this is evaluated when you start Emacs again, you can no
    longer see the value of `mode-line-buffer-identification' which
    should be the buffer's name.

    Remember, in order to see this problem, you have to subsequently
    start up a new Emacs so that it evaluates those custom-variables,
    i.e. NOT in an "emacs -Q" session.

    You should then see what I reported in:
