Every time I launch emacs, it prompts that: enter image description here

desktop file appears to be in use by PID ***,Use it may cause a conflicts.

Actually, I only run a single one emacs

me@host:~$ ps -aux | grep 'emacs' | sed "s/$USER/me/g"
me    4169  1.6  3.1 331468 125840 pts/1   Sl   09:28   0:05 emacs
me    4447  0.0  0.0  11928   896 pts/1    S+   09:34   0:00 grep --color=auto emacs

and the PID 32060 does not exist

me@host:~$ ps -aux | grep '32060' | sed "s/$USER/me/g"
me    4546  0.0  0.0  11928   960 pts/1    S+   09:37   0:00 grep --color=auto 32060

What's the problem which prompt such a reminder?
