Next time this happens, type "C-h l" and see if it gives a clue.  In any 
case, post the output of "C-h l" here.

Since it sounds like something is invoking "C-x C-s", you might want to 
define some hook to be called from basic-save-buffer or one of its 
subroutines, to catch the cases when this happens.  Then you could have 
an idea who called that function.
