Last week I had again one of the file mixups, but it appeared that also
files were affected that were outside of Emacs. So now I suspect the file
system instead of Emacs. As Emacs is the most used program on my computer
it is natural that in case of problems files that are under control of
Emacs are affected.

A disk check revealed that there were problems with the file structure on
that partition so I reformatted the thing and populated it with new copies
of the files.

Now I am quite confident that Emacs was not the cause of the problem.
