Starting Emacs from the command line with a file name doesn't open the file after setting initial-buffer-choice #69

If I set

 (setq initial-buffer-choice (lambda () (get-buffer "*dashboard*")))

as mentioned in the README file and run emacs path/to/some/file from a shell, Emacs won't open that file (as it used to). I guess this is normal behaviour, but it I think it is worth to mention it as it may impact people's workflow.

Hi @lckarssen,

This is a regression that should be addressed. I'll look into it soon.
