dot hash files from emacs

Something keeps dropping files beginning with ".#". I suspect emacs. They're actually like weird inode links or something. I think when I go to save a file that's currently being read or something it moves the current copy to the .# file and then it goes away when the pending read is done. But it leaves a .# turd in the directory, which is a problem for Catalyst.

Anybody know what this is about and how to configure it? It's amazingly difficult to search for this problem. And google isn't helpful with 'emacs "dot hash"'.
