Hi all,

I also met this issue on a machine running gnome3 Ubuntu 18.04. 

Took sometime for me to figured it out from mail list and news file. 

Haven’t look into the code to figure where it happens.

Yes, that's my reading of the code in startup.el, and also what NEWS says.  If you find that we do somehow create that directory, please show the code which does that, and report that as a bug.
