Ok, I just went over the logs and checked the story of that piece of
code.  My change on 2000-10-04 indeed only added a single line of code
in basic-save-buffer; if you look at the diff between 1.503 and 1.505,
there is only that single change.  1.504 is a screwed up version I
accidentally comitted.

The `car' in find-file-noselect was present when the code was first
written by RMS on 1998-10-16 (revision 1.430).  RMS removed that `car'
in his change on 1999-01-24 (1.443), but added it back on 1999-09-11
(1.460).  Dave made an, as far as I can see, unrelated change to that
line of code on 2000-03-26 (1.475).

I hope that helps you to figure out what is right here; I don't know
enough about these mechanisms to say anything meaningful.

We could try and remove version 1.504 from the RCS master, so that
tracking changes becomes easier again.  Alternatively, we could try
and replace the log message for 1.504 / 1.505 to indicate what
happened, and maybe put a remark into the ChangeLog.
