Well, I checked that the saving of the desktop upon killing Emacs will
no longer trash the desktop file if there is a desktop load in
progress.  That works.

With regard to the lazy timer: I am afraid that this is a complicated
race condition for getting several timers active, and I don't use
them, anyway.  Just setting the timer variable to zero without
stopping the timer can't be a good idea, however, so I think this
change is correct.

I think that there may be several other cases where it might make
sense to either cancel the lazy load or complete it.  However, I have
not used or programmed that mode myself, and would think it more
appropriate if the author checked that.  I don't feel I know my way
around that one.
