This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
not to your local site managers!
Please write in English, because the Emacs maintainers do not have
translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list,
and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.

In GNU Emacs 21.1.1 (i686-pc-linux-gnu, X toolkit)
 of 2001-11-07 on cc.at.coli.uni-sb.de
configured using `configure  --with-pop --prefix=/usr'
Important settings:
  value of $LC_ALL: nil
  value of $LC_COLLATE: nil
  value of $LC_CTYPE: nil
  value of $LC_MESSAGES: nil

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

I merge two files in Ediff, and I save the file (w c).  Then I get a
directory presented in the minibuffer ("~/.calendar/").  I hit return.
Then I'm told "~/.calendar/" already exists.  It was unclear whether
it meant the directory (in which case writing would fail; if it were a
link to a directory it might replace the link with the file).  So I
reply `n' to the question if I want to replace it.  And then it seems
to have become impossible to write again, and make another attempt (w
c just tells me that the file is read-only).

Am I using it the wrong way (I couldn't find anything to that effect),
or can this be a bug?

I'm happy to provide more details should this not be sufficient.
