Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list.

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

If I do
C-x C-f somefile.txt RET C-x C-s
in order to create and save an empty file, Emacs replies

No changes need to be saved

and does not actually save the file, even though saving the file would
change the state on disk.

The doc string for `C-x C-s' and the sections of the Emacs manual
about Visiting and Saving say that the file is written if the buffer
is modified.  Where do you see a reference to "the state on disk"?

If you like, you can do:

(add-hook 'find-file-not-found-functions
          (lambda ()
            (set-buffer-modified-p t)

Perhaps Emacs should have an option that does that for the user
(default: NOT).
