Hi List, 

after reinstalling Archlinux and updating Emacs I have a problem with
opening files:

| -rw-r--r--  1 me grp 14143  4. Nov 2012
|     myFile.l
| lrwxrwxrwx  1 me grp    22  7. Feb 14:17
|    .#myFile.l -> address@hidden:1391769432

In dired, the moment I open a file, a symlink to this file is
created. When doing  C-x s (save-some-buffers) I'm queried if I want to
save "myFile.l", although I did not touch it yet (besides finding
it). If I say "Yes", the file is shown as modified in 'git status' but
there is actually no visible diff to the current HEAD (no wonder, since
I did not touch the file content yet). 

When Emacs auto-saves periodically, a new file #myFile.l# is created, so
finally I end up with "myFile.l", "#myFile.l#" and ".#myFile.l -> ..."
(turned into a link to a non existing target) which is quite annoying -
especially considering that nothing special happened, I just opened a
file for editing (no crash or so).

I did not have this problem before, what might be the culprit?
