This is from `ask-user-about-supersession-threat'.

Thanks for that one.  I redefined it with an function which has an empty
body, so I can work undisturbed.  Of course this is only an interim
solution until the reason of the problem is tracked down.

I'm absolutely sure that no other program is using
this file.

Does this happen since the DST change (saturday/sunday) or did it
happen before?

This could be but I'm not a 100% sure.

Does it go away when you touch the file in question, that is, set
its modification time to now.

Hm.  I couldn't find this file attribute within the Windows Explorer.
Within dired I found the operation "Change Timestamp ... (T)".  I tried
it but it didn't help.  Could you please be a bit more detailed about
what I should do exactly.

best regards and thanks for your help
