disturbing link

if you cange the contents of an file(example: bla.txt) with Emacs (running under linux) and don't save it
Emacs generates a link:

$>ls -l
lrwxrwxrwx 1 Trilobit Trilobit 36 8. Okt 00:16 .#bla.txt -> Trilobit@***
-rw-r--r--    1 Trilobit    Trilobit           0  8. Okt 00:16 bla.txt

this link is removed after the file is saved, but newly createt after a new change of the content, that's quite disturbing.

Is there any option to tell Emacs never to create this link, or at least to create it in another directory? (the "autosave" option and the "make backup" option are already swtiched off, with no result ;-( )

Thx for your help,
