Although I can't answer your emacs-lisp-mode question directly since I do not 
have a machine running redhat, perhaps I can help you narrow the field some.  I 
run emacs 21.2 in two environments (the pre-compiled version on a windows pc 
under Win2000 and one that I just built on a solaris 2.8 unix machine).  I 
don't have any problem with either of these builds not automatically entering 

Hope this helps some.

Ugh. Right under my nose.  I changed it to:

(setq backup-enable-predicate(lambda (name)
                               (not (or
                                     (and (> (length name) 5) 
(string-equal "/tmp/" (substring name 0 5)))
                                     (and (> (length name) 18) 
(string-equal "/local/www/htdocs/" (substring name 0 18)))

(tin screwed up the indentation).

BTW I noticed before when I edited .emacs emacs automatically entered 
lisp mode, but since I upgraded it doesn't do it anymore. Is this some 
redhat thing or a change in emacs?
