During initial startup of emacro 2.04b4 with GNU Emacs 20.7.1 running stock from RPMs under Red Hat Linux 6.2 with all updates applied, I get:

Error in init file: Symbol's function definition is void: t

This is just after answering "n" to the query about SQL support. If I restart emacs, it prompts again about SQL support, then halts on the same message (presumably all of the other questions were cached somewhere and it's dying while trying to record something about SQL support). Starting clean and varying my answers to the questions before that one seems to have no effect.

The *Messages* buffer leading up to this is:

I will happily debug further if you tell me how.

    This bug has already been fixed, and is sitting in CVS.
    The fixed release should go out at the beginning of 11-2000
