I'm afraid I can't figure out the problem with such cryptic references.
I can hope that the next version works, but that is about it. Sorry.
I can be more helpful. The error messages says that a byte-compiled
function whose argument list is (&optional buffer visible-ok) was called
with the wrong number of arguments (3 or more?) while evaluating the file
mode specification (found on the auto-mode-alist or in the -*-Mode-*- line
or Local Variables or...). The problem is probably in one of John's
privately loaded buffer modes, so John needs to do a little debugging
at home (e.g. M-x set-variable debug-on-error t).
