When in diary mode the command C-x C-s does save, but no message is
spoken.  The message does exist in the *Message* buffer.  If I save
again (withoug changes), I do hear "(No Changes Need To Be Saved)".
If I change the buffer the behavior reoccurs. 

Any ideas what is happening?

Is this peculiar to my setup?
