emacs -q didn't reproduce it, but then -q or not, sometime didn't
reproduce it.  Anyway, it takes about a minute to show up, ^X^B will
show the *Messages* buffer grown.  -q shouldn't matter as ~/nobody has
no .emacs as it is /.

I tried to reproduce your problem with both Emacs 21 and Emacs CVS.
It seems that the error message is triggered when Emacs tries to
auto-save.  Enabling debug-on-error gives the backtrace

Debugger entered--Lisp error: (file-error "Creating directory" "permission denied" 
  make-directory("//.emacs.d/auto-save-list/" t)

when typing "M-x do-auto-save".  The good news is that it happened only
under Emacs 21, but not in the current development version which will
hopefully be released this year.
