This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
not to your local site managers!
Please write in English, because the Emacs maintainers do not have
translators to read other languages for them.

and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.

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

I have  saveplace enabled, and  I launched Emacs from  another account
than mine, so, no permission on ~/.emacs-place. 

C-x C-c to  quit, it asks me if I want  to save ~/.emacs-place anyway,
because it's write protected. I say no, and get this error message

« basic-save-buffer-2:  Attempt to  save to  a file  which  you aren't
allowed to write »

Which  I understand,  but  the problem  is  that it  prevents me  from
quitting !!
