Restart Emacs on System Startup

It’s been a year, since I figured out the hack that finally let me use my Compose key in Emacs.1 Without it, I am unable to type any kind of quotation marks or umlauts in emacs.

The first thing you’ll notice is that the example sentences don’t sound like they came out of a DMV training manual (“the lights started flashing”) — they come from Milton and Shakespeare and Tennyson (“A thought flashed through me, which I clothed in act”)...
