I am having problems obtaining a line number while within an emacs buffer. I have the following number in my initilization file: (setq line-number-display-limit 2000000), and I have verified that line number mode it turned on. When I first enter the (~500) line buffer, emacs provides me with a line number; however, it very quickly switched the line number reading to L??.
Any thoughts as to what could be wrong?
P.S. I have found searching for an answer to this problem nearly impossible as the key character string (L??) is seen by search engines as L(any character)(any character) -- does anybody know a way around this?
Any help will be much appreciated. Thanks in advance!
