Thanks, but I think the error message is a red herring as far as the
copy/paste problem is concerned. I had turned off the Arc code major
mode to eliminate it as a factor. I just did the following to
eliminate the above error:
(add-to-list 'auto-mode-alist '("\\.arc$" . ruby-mode))
The file loads fine w/o errors now, but I still can't paste into a non-
emacs window. I don't fully understand the X windows copy/paste
mechanism, but I think the source app is involved when pasting into a
destination app, so apparently emacs is doing something different when
the file has a .arc extension regardless of the major mode in effect.
