I am very sorry for being so incorrect. My juvenile
excitement to contribute made me hasteful and
careless. I only checked if the altered version
works as I wanted over invalid filenames and
non-existent folders.

Thanks for your patience and, once again, sorry for
the inconvenience.

Thanks for the patch.  However... it doesn't work.

Running 'src/nano doc/frap' says:
[ Invalid filename. Save under different name. ]

But it is a perfectly valid file and directory name;
it's just a new file.

Running 'src/nano woooo/frap' still says:
[ Error writing lock file: Directory 'woooo' doesn't exist ]

It should just say that the directory does not exist,
that is: the last part of the message.  It shouldn't
attempt to write a lock file in a non-existent dir.

Ehm...?  Which use cases?

Hmm.  This doesn't sound like a good method.  I would
expect the code doing a stat on the part before the last
slash in the given filename.
