I understad how that could be a problem, can't the emergency save code be
modified to save to, etc in case of
existing duplicate filename?  Would this cause a problem elsewhere?  It
almost seems like a bug that if "" exists in the current work
directory that an emergency save is aborted.  There could be a save file two
days old in your working directory and it would abort saving your current
work buffer because of that file.
