The doc-string for delete-auto-save-files says:

*Non-nil means delete auto-save file when a buffer is saved or killed.

   Note that auto-save file will not be deleted if the buffer is killed
   when it has unsaved changes.

I can't quite understand the "note that..." bit. It directly contradicts the first sentence. The behaviour of all versions of Emacs I have used is to delete the auto-save file when a buffer is explicitly killed (assuming this variable is set to non-nil). The Emacs Lisp manual doesn't say anything corresponding to the second sentence either.

Is this a bug in the doc-string?
