editor commands ignoring mode line?

    Date:  9 Feb 1982 1613-PST
    It looks like the function LOAD is sensitive to any package specification
    in a file's mode line, but that editor commands which
    require reading of expressions from a buffer into lisp
    allow the read to take place in whatever pkg is current, regardless of
    wheTher one is explicitly specified in the mode line in the buffer.
    Can this really be??
Sort of.  The editor keeps the current package the same as that specified in the file.
Had you changed the -*- of the buffer since it had been read in?  If so, you should
do M-X Reparse Mode Line to update the editor's idea of what is there.
