I was going to say that this won't happen in Emasc 24.1, due to the
changes from http://debbugs.gnu.org/cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=4432,
but it still does.


(defcustom message-auto-save-directory
  (if (file-exists-p message-directory)
      (file-name-as-directory (expand-file-name "drafts" message-directory))

should use `file-writable-p' instead of `file-exists-p'.
