   The ~/.emacs.d/auto-save-list/ directory is used for the `.saves-*' files 
   where Emacs saves session information (used by "M-x recover-session").  
   (See startup.el:auto-save-list-file-prefix.)

   These are not the normal auto-save files, but they do resemble them 
   because Emacs saves session info periodically, like it does with 
   auto-saving.  Perhaps the problem was with those files, not with autosave 

That's highly likely.  However, given that rms has said he already looked at
the code, I think he is right that I will have to isolate the problem better
before you guys can do more.  Unless he did not look at the session save

Unfortunately, it is hard to look at something like the *Messages* buffer
when the program is in an infinite loop of failed file operations.  Since
it's been years since I did emacs debugging, I don't remember offhand all the
stuff I have to do to debug, trace, etc., which means I have to look all this
stuff up before I can give you a distilled version of the problem.
