I have been trying to build a personal document class and I have come  
up something weird with fancyhdr. I use version 3.1

If I declare

\renewcommand{\sectionmark}[1]{Section #1}% just for the sake of an  

I get what I asked for. Plus I can change page styles any number of  
times if I want without any problems. If, instead, I define  
\sectionmark before the first \pagestyle then the definition for  
\sectionmark reverts to the original one (\markboth{\MakeUppercase 
{ etc.) after the execution of \pagestyle{...}. Can anyone confirm?  
Is that intentional (i.e a design feature) or a buglet?
