[Openmcl-devel] Emacs: local variables list contains values that may not be safe

 From the if-it's-not-one-thing-it's-another department...

Just now (at least it seems like it started just now -- I don't  
remember ever encountering this before, and I've been using emacs for  
a long, long time) whenever I try to edit a Lisp file in emacs I get a  
message like this:

The local variables list in l1-application.lisp
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  

   * Package : CCL

This persists even if I get rid of my .emacs file, so it's not a  
result of any of my customizations (which were pretty minimal anyway).  
Does anyone know how to get emacs to stop doing this?
