Known bug, too risky to fix in 21.4 (we've had one disastrous recent
bug in init file handling), probably (already? will be?) fixed in 21.5.
I think the following will work. Rename your custom file (eg, to
(setq custom-file (expand-file-name "~/.xemacs/options.el"))))
Yup. Note that in 21.5, the variable custom-file is defined when the
user init is read, so you can avoid using another file name with the following
(let ((real-custom-file custom-file))
(setq custom-file "nonsense")
`(lambda () (setq custom-file ,real-custom-file)))
