That variable seems strange to me. But then so does
toolbar-visible-p. I don't think either of these variables
should exist. There are specifiers that should be used instead.
Urp. Gak. Gronk.
If toolbar-visible-p isn't the way to do it, why is that what
'customize' scribbled into my .xemacs/init.el?
Also, apropos on 'toolbar' flags these as 'user variables':
Guess what? toolbar-visible-p doesn't have the '*' flagging it
as a user variable.
But that's what customize scribbled into my files. What's wrong
with this picture?
Also, getting rid of a *VARIABLE* that can be *found* with 'apropos'
is *EVIL EVIL EVIL* until we have an equally-simple way to find
the specifier you want to use instead.
I typed control-h a toolbar <ret>. I got all the info I needed
to get toolbars to work the way I wanted, and then some - I found
'toolbar-gnus' which I'd been searching for. ;)
What's the equivalent easy way to find what specifier to attach to
what to get the same behavior? I did an apropos on 'specifier'
and found *NOT ONE* function or variable flagged with the '*' user
What's wrong with THIS picture?
Sorry for the ranting, but....
