Subject: bug#2799: 23.0.91; built-in variable
`shift-select-mode' not bound




Please write in English if possible, because the Emacs maintainers
usually do not have translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the emacs-pretest-bug@xxxxxxx mailing list.

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

* simple.el (shift-select-mode): Move declaration from callint.c.
(handle-shift-selection): Remove `deactivate' arg and check
shift-select-mode instead.

causes Emacs to complain during loadup:

Loading cus-start...
Note, built-in variable `shift-select-mode' not bound

I think this happens because simple.el, where this variable is
defined, is loaded only after cus-start.

If Emacs crashed, and you have the Emacs process in the gdb debugger,
please include the output from the following gdb commands:
`bt full' and `xbacktrace'.
If you would like to further debug the crash, please read the file
d:/gnu/emacs/etc/DEBUG for instructions.
