Hi,

I mean this behavior:

0.  Start emacs -Q
1.  Find any file that is writable for you
2.  Make some change
3.  You've changed your mind.  You type C-x C-c.
    Type n to negate the "Save file ..." question
    Type "yes" to answer the "Modified buffers exist; exit anyway?"
    question

As a result, Emacs exits, but it leaves an autosave file.  IMHO this
shouldn't be the case, because the user decidedly wanted to discard his
changes.  Autosave files should only survive a session if Emacs crashed.

With the current behavior, we only confuse users because they will think
that the autosave files come from a crash, and will want to check if
they have to recover anything.


Thanks,

Michael.
