It was suggested that I set the auto-save-visited-file-name var:

>>(set (make-local-variable 'auto-save-visited-file-name) t)
>>Try putting that in the file itself, either as the first line
>># -*- eval: (set ...) -*-

Which didn't work:

And you suggested:

Nosing around, I find a variable called buffer-auto-save-file-name.
Setting that in an eval statement does work, if anyone is

-*- eval: (setq buffer-auto-save-file-name "Whatever") -*-

Also, the run-with-idle-timer idea worked just fine. Thanks! Now I
just wish I could make the USR1 signal work. I'm running version
20.6.1 here at work, so I will try with my newer version at home
before submitting any bug reports...
