    Richard Stallman <address@hidden> quotes someone else saying:

    Can you say exactly what you did, starting from login?

I didn't do this myself.  I don't know any more.

    Assuming we can reproduce this, what is the right solution?  Is there
    already a policy for how Emacs should behave when there's an error
    saving a file at exit time, and that file is managed by Emacs (i.e.,
    is not just a regular file visited for editing by the user)?

It may as well ignore the error.  I don't see a better alternative.
The user wants to exit and should not be impeded.
