This is the "user lock" file, created by Emacs to prevent accidental
editing of the same file from more than one Emacs session.  (The
second session will warn you about the lock; see the node
"Interlocking" in the user manual for more details.)  The fact that
this file is created whenever you have unsaved changes is normal.

This is not good, but can happen (hopefully, rarely).
