4. M-x desktop-save, choose the created dir
5. C-x C-c
6. stay in the created dir

Actual results:
*scratch* buffer opens, there's no buffer created with the new files

the problem was posted into emacs upstream discussion
Comment 2 Ales Kozumplik 2013-09-27 04:18:21 EDT
Petr, thanks for posting that link. I even found that this has really been documented in the release NEWS:


** `desktop-path' no longer includes the "." directory.
Desktop files are now located in ~/.emacs.d by default.

It unfortunately looks like emacs upstream is not much afraid of breaking tiny things like this and we'll have to read the NEWS more often.

Here's what fixed it for me in my .emacs:

(setq desktop-path (cons "./" desktop-path))

As far as I'm concerned you can close this now as NOTABUG.
