I want my emacs to backup every file on save (with version control),
but for some reason i only have one version of each file.

My configuration is this:

(setq make-backup-files t)
(setq version-control t) ; Enable backup versioning
(setq delete-old-versions t) ; Don't ask about delete old versions of
(setq kept-new-versions 1000000) ; Remember 1M versions of backup
(setq kept-old-versions 1000000)
(setq backup-directory-alist (quote ((".*" . "~/.emacs_backups/"))))

How can have one new backup version created every time i save a file?
