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.
