I recently upgraded to 11.2, and with it came Xemacs 21.5.29. Because the default font is too small for my eyes, I go to the Options menu item and change the font and font size (which works for that session), and then save these settings to the custom.el file in ~/.xemacs. However, when I invoke xemacs at the command line again, these customization settings are not loaded, or if they are, they are not acted upon. This used to work in SuSE 10.3 and Xemacs 21.4. Even from within xemacs, the key sequence M-x load-file (RET) ~/.xemacs/custom.el does not cause the customizations to occur. Nor does a load command on the command line
xemacs -load ~/.xemacs/custom.el
produce any better results. Does anyone have any ideas on this one? I note that the forum has a couple of items in the last year that might or might not be related, it is tough to tell. Is 21.5 buggy in this regard? Thanks.
