 Subject: recursive-load-depth-limit is too low
 Date: Tue, 23 Oct 2001 09:31:11 -0400
 From: Peter S Galbraith <GalbraithP@dfo-mpo.gc.ca>


 The variable recursive-load-depth-limit is set to 10 in
 Emacs-21.1, and this is much too low.  I spent a long time
 yesterday hunting down a `recursive load' where there was none:

 require: Recursive load suspected: 

 (Setting recursive-load-depth-limit to nil solves the problem)

 The semi package load sequence is pretty complicated, and a limit
 of 10 just isn't enough.  I suggest that you use a much higher
 default limit unlikely to be attained by off-the-shelf elisp
 packages, say something like 50?

 Thanks very much for an excellent and fun to use version of
