Re: Quitting `save-buffer' loses backup file

I am going through mail that I failed to deal with earlier.
Please forgive the delay.

    $ echo "foo" > bar ; cp bar bar~
    $ emacs -Q -f view-hello-file bar

    In Emacs, in the "bar" buffer, type

    M-x insert-buffer RET
    C-x C-s

    Emacs should display a '*Warning*' buffer now; type C-g to quit.
    Now `buffer-backed-up' is t, but the backup file bar~ is gone. :-(

When I try it, I find that bar~ exists but bar is gone.
And buffer-backed-up is nil.

Does it still fail for you the same as before?
