    Oh, I guess I should mention a couple of other things:

Actually the one thing I would like is a complete self-contained
recipe for making the bug happen.  It is not normal for Emacs to write
auto-save files in emacs.d.

      If I'm not mistaken, the autosave files used to be
        written to the home dir;

Not normally.

     now apparently there is a new separate dir
        created in the home dir for that purpose.

Not normally.  So I think you must have done something unusual.  That
is why I need a precise recipe for how to make this happen.

    4.  Though I don't have time to do this myself right now, what I would
        suggest to try to reproduce this bug is this: Run with a home dir that
        contains an .emacs.d directory that you do not have any of rwx on.  Put
        emacs into a state where it wants to autosave something.  See what

What happens is it works fine and puts these files in the usual place,
which is not in emacs.d.
