I have that too on the 27.1 build I use on Ubuntu (based on the current
Debian source package I rebuilt).

I'd love to get rid of that.

That appears to work for (with a slightly modded search over the Rcpp sources
grepping for 'include' in \*.cpp files).

But that is a poor substitute to what I had been using here many years: M-x ag
from https://github.com/Wilfred/ag.el which I can (very strongly) recommend;
you also need the ag binary from https://github.com/ggreer/the_silver_searcher 
(and I always the Ubuntu packaging for both).

I am otherwise very happy with 27.1.  Rendering and all that feels snappier,
(optional) vterm support is marvelous.  I had issued with the VM mode for
mail but that was a bug and the Debian maintainer kindly fixed it.
