I restarted Emacs today on one of my machines (because I built a new
version), and suddenly some of the files I worked on in the previous
session were not visited by Emacs.  It took time for me to find which
files I was working on, because I don't keep records of all of the
files I have in my session: I trust desktop.el to do that.

Looking in desktop.el, I see that desktop-buffers-not-to-save
intentionally omits buffers whose names end in ".log" and a couple
others.  Sure thing, the files that were not visited after restarting
ended in ".log".

I think that variable's default should be nil.  I think it is up to
the user to decide that she doesn't want to record some of the
buffers/files.  It is no business of desktop.el to decide for the
user.  Especially since there is no way of telling desktop.el to
override the value of desktop-buffers-not-to-save for some specific
buffer, short of renaming the buffer.

Similarly with desktop-files-not-to-save: its default should be nil,
IMO.
