If you mean this last line, then it's harmless (cmd.exe does not
support the trick of detecting whether a directory exists by checking
if a ``file'' named NUL exists in it).  Just ignore that error
message.

When is this error message shown? when you click on [State]?  Also,
what is your HOME environment variable set to?  Please give me a
complete recipe for reproducing this, so I could see how to fix it.

You can always save them manually, by editing .emacs yourself, until I
find the problem and fix it.
