?? With Emacs 23.1, the version should be 206.

I'd like to know what happens when you do the following

  - create an empty directory and cd to it
  - set HOME to that directory
  - create a test file (let's call it test.txt) with a couple lines
  - then
       emacs -Q test.txt
       M-x desktop-save <RET>
