Subject: 23.3; Unsafe directory at startup.
--text follows this line--
This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
not to your local site managers!
Please write in English if possible, because the Emacs maintainers
usually do not have translators to read other languages for them.

Your report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list
and the gnu.emacs.bug news group, and at http://debbugs.gnu.org.

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug.  If you can, give
a recipe starting from `emacs -Q':


I just installed emacs-23.3.1 on a 64-bit Windows server where I have
temporary admin rights.

I did copy my .emacs file from a 32-bit Windows workstation to the
startup directory.

At startup I get the following error.

Warning (initialization): An error occurred while loading `c:/Program

error: The directory `~/.emacs.d/server' is unsafe

this directory is created by Emacs itself, why is it "unsafe"?

If Emacs crashed, and you have the Emacs process in the gdb debugger,
please include the output from the following gdb commands:
    `bt full' and `xbacktrace'.
For information about debugging Emacs, please read the file
c:/Program Files/Emacs/emacs-23.3/etc/DEBUG.
