OK. It is always nice if upgrades happen smoothly, and hopefully in 
the future they will most of the time, but I understand.

New issue: I've loaded a LaTeX file to see how each theme works. I 
do M-x color-theme-select, my buffer splits in two (or perhaps more 
correctly my frame splits into two buffers?). As I go down the list 
hitting enter to see each one, I realize that often I am not seeing 
the theme correctly. For example, if I chose the "Black" theme, 
about 50% of the theme changes depending on the theme I had 
*previously* selected to preview. Obviously Black isn't defining 
every possible thing and the defaults from the previous selection 

I can make sure I'm seeing a theme correctly by saving, quitting, 
and restarting, but it is a bit of a hassle.

Anyway, all is fixed and working now. Thanks for an explanation of 
the issue.
