I'm not sure whether this is the right forum, if not, please excuse me.
Many of my latex files have a "Local Variables" section to set the
associated bibliography search rules. When Emacs.app reads such a
file, it displays the following message:
The local variables list in XXXX
contains values that may not be safe (*).
Do you want to apply it? You can type
y -- to apply the local variables list.
n -- to ignore the local variables list.
! -- to apply the local variables list, and permanently mark these
values (*) as safe (in the future, they will be set automatically.)
* my-latex-bibfile : "~/YYYY"
I always answer "!", but at the next session, the message comes back
nonetheless. I notice that the following is automatically appended at
the end of my .emacs:
;; custom-set-variables was added by Custom.
;; If you edit it by hand, you could mess it up, so be careful.
;; Your init file should contain only one such instance.
;; If there is more than one, they won't work right.
'(safe-local-variable-values (quote ((my-latex-bibfile . "~/YYYY")))))
However this seems to have no effect since the message comes back at the
next session. (My .emacs is actually a symbolic link to dot-emacs.elc,
but I don't think this is relevant.)
(1) What's wrong? How can I avoid the message coming back?
(2) Is there a way to set the safe variables without going through the
