Thanks, Vitalie.

I tried a few of your suggestions at a time.

(global-visual-line-mode -1)
(cd "C:\DATA\")

This yielded the following message when I next opened emacs:

Warning (initialization): An error occurred while loading `c:/Documents
and Settings/ryanc/.emacs':

End of file during parsing: c:/Documents and Settings/ryanc/.emacs

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 of warning message text--------

Regarding auto-fill-mode versus visual-line-mode, all I can say is that
Fill was printed in my modeline when I had a .txt or .Rnw file open.
Now Fill does not appear in my modeline, and behavior is back to the way
I want it, no filling.  Thanks!

default directory seems to be unchanged: C:\Documents and
Settings\ryanc.  Does it matter where in .emacs I put that cd command?
