When I do a
M-X Set Variable$auto save interval$50
I get no auto saves at all, but when I do a
M-5 M-0 M-X Set Variable$auto save interval
it works as I expected.
Is this the expected behavior? Is the first "50" a string argument
and therefore not interpreted correctly by EMACS while the second one
is numeric and interpreted correctly? They both look the same if I do
a View Variable.
P.S. Yes, I used escapes, but I put dollar signs in this message to
make sure that the mailer wouldn't barf.
