autosave

This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
not to your local site managers!
Please write in English, because the Emacs maintainers do not have
translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list,
and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.

In GNU Emacs 21.2.1 (i386-redhat-linux-gnu, X toolkit, Xaw3d scroll bars)

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

When unable to create (or write to?) some autosave dir .emacs.d or below,
retries forever.  This occurred when I was running with a home dir that I
couldn't write to (because I was root on a different machine).  Never had
this problem in versions 20.4 and before.  Since nothing stops the constant
error repeats, it is difficult to check the exact state.
