Bug Description

Mac OS 10.6.5

Emacs built from bzr trunk.
revno: 102735
revision-id: <email address hidden>

nxhtml branched from bzr launchpad
revno: 764 [merge]
revision-id: <email address hidden>

nxhtml loads fine before byte compilation. After byte compiling nxhtml, I get the following warning on emacs startup. nxhtml is loaded at startup by placing "(load (concat local-modules-dir "/nxhtml/autostart"))" in the init.el file. I have placed emacs output between <start emacs output> and <end emacs output> pseudo tags.

<start emacs output>
Warning (initialization): An error occurred while loading `/Users/lotia/.emacs.d/init.el':

Symbol's value as variable is void: web-vcs-investigate-output-mode

To ensure normal operation, you should investigate and remove the
cause of the error in your initialization file. Start Emacs with
the `--debug-init' option to view a complete error backtrace.
<end emacs output>

Starting Emacs with the "--debug-init" option yields the following output:
<start emacs output>

Please let me know if I can do anything to provide further assistance with this. I'm afraid my emacs lisp isn't good enough to already have provided a bugfix. But I may be able to provide more debug information with some guidance. I am not able to attach the output of M-x nxhtml-report-bug because that function isn't available due to the problem with loading nxhtml.

Dear lborgman,
I did a bzr pull and currently HEAD is at:
revno: 766 [merge]
revision-id: <email address hidden>

The byte compiled version of nxhtml loads fine, and there are no issues after byte compilation.
Thank you for the very quick response and for the fix.

Best,
Ali
