During my INIT file (well, at the beginning and the end, at least),
there is no string stored in Buffer Filenames. Trying to fetch a
string from it under such circumstances gives a QNS error. However,
if you enter the minibuffer while in a buffer that has a file loaded
into it, Buffer Filenames does contain a filename.
To diagnose this, do the following:
1. Start your EMACS with that init file.
2. Wait for the QNS <dink> and then type a question mark to enter the
3. Wait for the failing code to be displayed, and then type a V, the
debugger's "View a Q-reg" command. Then type an escape, so that View
Q-reg is prepared to read a variable name instead of a Q reg name.
Now type in "buffer filenames" and hit return.
4. The value of Buffer Filenames is displayed beneath the line
"Q$Buffer Filenames". I bet it is zero.
5. You might as well ^C out at this point.
