ls in my home directory, I amm greeted by a lot of this:
#%2Ascratch%2A#1399_po# #%2Ascratch%2A#14484YsZ# [...]
I also have the following in my
(defvar autosave-location (concat user-emacs-directory "data/autosave")) (setq auto-save-file-name-transforms `((".*" ,autosave-location t)))
Why, then are the scratch autosaves not being sent to
~/.emacs.d/data/autosave and instead are being blasted around my file system? Ideally, I just want it to save to that folder, however if that can't be done, disabling autosave for
*scratch* buffers entirely would suffice.
I believe this started with Emacs 24.4.
