Re: emacspeak causes gnus not to work




The problem is the emacspeak.sh shell script uses the -q switch to
turn of loading of init files, but also looks for a .emacs file in the
users home directory and loads it explicitly with the -l switch - this
is why your .emacs is not being ignored, but possibly other init files
are. 

I'm not sure why the script is like this - personally I don't use
it. Maybe Raman can enlighten us as to the rationale for doing this -
perhaps emacspeak works better if emacspeak is loaded before local
init files?
