 +====== Notes on troubles I've had with GNU Emacs ======
  
 +A random scrapbook of problems and solutions for things I've stubbed my toe on with GNU Emacs.
 +
 +----
 +
 +
 +Starting up Emacs24 one day, and the C++ setup didn't get run. I enabled
 +
 +''​(setq debug-on-error t)''​
 +
 +in my ''​.emacs.d/​init.el''​ and saw:
 +
 +''​c-font-lock-fontify-region:​ Symbol'​s function definition is void: nil''​
 +
 +Running with ''​emacs -Q''​ to disable startup scripts saw everything working, so it's something in ''​init.el''​. A bit of guesswork/​triangulation later, and it's this line:
 +
 +'''​(font-lock-mode t t (font-lock))''​
 +
 +in ''​(custom-set-variables''​.
 +
 +I suspect this is an old line turning on global font lock. Now replaced by ''​global-font-lock-mode''​ which appears to be on by default anyway. I removed the line and all is now well.
