I thought the syntax had to be

Yes, I used to think that too, but then I read this in the info node "Local
Variables in Files":

    _If `mode' is used to set a major mode, it should be the first
    "variable" in the list._

This implies to me (though not very clearly), that the "mode" statement is
optional, but if present it must go at the front.

Anyway, I can confirm that sh-shell-file is set to the "tcsh" value whether
or not I put the "mode" keyword in; but it happens after the mode setup and
so has no effect.

What happens if you set sh-shell to the `tcsh' symbol there, instead of (or in
addition to) setting sh-shell-file to the "/usr/bin/tcsh" string?
