bug#9304: report-emacs-bug fails: /Mail write-protected.

From: Stefan Klinger
Subject: bug#9304: report-emacs-bug fails: /Mail write-protected.
Date: Mon, 15 Aug 2011 16:52:48 +0200
User-agent: Mutt/1.5.21 (2010-09-15)

Reproduce: Start with a write-protected ~/Mail, run ‘emacs -Q’, type ‘M-x 
report-emacs-bug’. This fails with the message “make-directory: Creating 
directory: permission denied, /home/foo/Mail/drafts”. No further information is 

Directory ${HOME}/Mail is write protected intentionally. IMHO bug reports 
should be created in a somewhat temporary location.

‘emacs-version’ reports

  GNU Emacs 23.3.1 (x86_64-pc-linux-gnu, X toolkit, Xaw3d scroll bars) of 
2011-04-10 on brahms, modified by Debian
