Just got stranger. It appears to have something to do with the file name. I copied arc.arc to bja.scm and I could copy/paste. I copied bja.scm to bja.arc and couldn't copy/paste.

So changing the emacs mode has no effect on an existing buffer, but changing the file name does. I guess there's something about a .arc extension that turns off copy/paste from emacs.

edit: another datapoint - everything works fine when running emacs w/o X via: emacs -nw arc.arc

While experimenting, I received the following error after entering the following from the command line:

emacs bja.arc

"File mode specification error: (error "Autoloading failed to define function archive-mode")
