Re: Big desktop undo buffer crashes Emacs

I now realize that *desktop* is not a file visiting buffer, so it does
not matter if people mess it up.  Thus one can indeed just disable
undo rather than applying the patch I proposed.  But that user visible
*desktop* buffer is confusing, especially if the user also has a
buffer visiting his desktop-base-file-name, since the two buffers are
identical.  Is there any reason not to rename "*desktop*" to
" *desktop" (with a leading space) and kill it after it is written to
disk?  Is there any reason to keep this buffer hanging around
consuming some memory and being user visible?

But I do not use desktop myself, so maybe I am overlooking something.
