epy or pymacs disabling ido-find-file #88

On a fresh Ubuntu 12.04 install, with emacs-snapshot from the cassou ppa, I'm gettingido-find-file being disabled somehow by extensions/pymacs.el.

I first installed emacs-starter-kit, then emacs-for-python, opened emacs and C-x C-f causes "Symbol's function definition is void" to be displayed and I get the same result callingM-x ido-find-file.

Commenting out (require 'pymacs (concat epy-install-dir "extensions/pymacs.el")) fixes the issue, but I just haven't got enough experience with elisp/emacs to do much investigative work beyond that.

Thank you for the report! This behaviour is extremely strange since there's no reference for ido in pymacs, but it's possible that there is some overriding of some fundamental function somewhere in it. The problem is reproduced even if you don't load emacs-starter-kit? I'm using the emacs default ubuntu distribution without starter-kit and can't reproduce the problem, will try with starter-kit to see if it's a conflict of some sort.

It seems to be related primarily to emacs-starter-kit, problem doesn't occur when I remove esk. But then the opposite is also true (i.e. no problem if I remove epy and leave esk). Workaround for me is just to remove esk, since I'm primarily using epy.
