This bug report will be sent to the Bug-GNU-Emacs mailing list
and the GNU bug tracker at debbugs.gnu.org.  Please check that
the From: line contains a valid email address.  After a delay of up
to one day, you should receive an acknowledgement at that address.

Please write in English if possible, as the Emacs maintainers
usually do not have translators for other languages.

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':

This behaviour started with Emacs 24.1 - it does not happen on earlier versions.

In my .emacs I defadvice several major modes to include a call to
untabify in the local-write-file-hooks. With this version of Emacs, the defadvice 
seems to trigger a bug where the message line states the file has been
saved when it has not been saved - the status line indicates it is still
in a modified state as well.

Minimal/sample code that triggers/illustrates this bug is:

(defadvice python-mode (after minor-modes-for-python activate compile)
  (add-hook 'local-write-file-hooks '(lambda () (untabify (point-min) (point-max)))))

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'.

As Glenn explains, this is not a bug.  It's probably due to a change in
untabify which now returns a different value, but since the return value
of untabify is undocumented, this is not a bug/regression.

But while I'm here, I'll point out a few improvement to your above code:
- don't quote lambda.
- use python-mode-hook rather than defadvice.
- use before-save-hook rather than local-write-file-hooks (this will
  also fix your problem).


  (add-hook 'python-mode-hook
            (lambda ()
              (add-hook 'before-save-hook
                        (lambda () (untabify (point-min) (point-max)))
                        nil 'local)))
