Thanks Uday. The filename for saving has no extension (for example, "foo").

I removed this line from my .emacs file:

  (setq default-major-mode 'text-mode)

and the bad behavior stopped. However, this line was present for
earlier versions of Emacs and didn't cause the mode-switching on

Any suggestions to stop the mode-switching, and still have my default
major mode be text-mode?  Thanks.
