LMI> I'm unable to reproduce this.  I get the expected error:

LMI> Debugger entered--Lisp error: (file-error "Opening output file" "is a 
directory" "/home/larsi/tmp")
LMI>   write-region(1 2 "/home/larsi/tmp")
LMI>   eval((write-region 1 2 "/home/larsi/tmp") nil)
LMI>   eval-expression((write-region 1 2 "/home/larsi/tmp") nil)

LMI> Are you calling `write-region' in a different way?  

Turn off your debugger.

$ emacs -q -nw
C-x h ESC x w r i t e - r e TAB RET / t m p RET
File /tmp already exists; overwrite anyway? (y or n)
