bug#17351: Trunk emacs splats .emacs.desktop at startup

Hello,  Emacs.

This is horrible.  I started a GUI emacs session, and there were errors
loading the desktop.  I loaded the file .emacs.desktop into my emacs
session to see what the problem was.  And lo and behold, that file had
already been overwritten by Emacs.  :-(

This is crazy.  What's the point of overwriting .emacs.desktop at
startup?  It's either going to be overwriting itself with a functionally
identical copy, or (as in the current case) its going to be losing
information needed for debugging.

This is surely a bug.

My trunk is at revision number 116992.

Alan Mackenzie.
