Dear all,

I have the following lines in Preferences.el to prevent backup/auto-save files from being written. Still, a (empty) folder named "auto-save-list" is created. How can I avoid that?

(setq make-backup-files nil); don't want backup files
(setq auto-save-default nil); don't want auto saving
(setq auto-save-list-file-name nil); don't want .saves files
