auto-save-list-file-name is still created in the file system when
auto-save-default is nil. This behaviour is a bit annoying since Emacs
will always create a lingering file that will end up not using.

My configuration is as follows:

;; disable auto save
(setq auto-save-default nil
      auto-save-list-file-name (concat +backups-dir+ (format
".auto-save-%s" (emacs-pid))))

If the user wants to disable auto save then nothing should be created in
the file system. What's the point in Emacs maintaining this file in this

Like I said: it does disable creating the file for me.
