Bug#252477: xbase-clients: [xauth] says it's creating a new authority file even when it doesn't

Package: xbase-clients
Version: 4.3.0.dfsg.1-4
Severity: minor
File: /usr/X11R6/bin/xauth

[0] branden@redwald:~ % XAUTHORITY=/home/branden/nonexistent
[0] branden@redwald:~ % ls nonexistent
ls: nonexistent: No such file or directory
[1] branden@redwald:~ %  XAUTHORITY=/home/branden/nonexistent xauth remove :0
xauth:  creating new authority file /home/branden/nonexistent
[0] branden@redwald:~ % ls nonexistent
ls: nonexistent: No such file or directory

Examine source of xauth and see if there are any other cases where it claims to
be creating an auth file when it doesn't.  Or see if it *does* create it, but
then deletes it.
