Ok, it looks like a bug in dispatch-conf.

Can you please confirm that you were using /etc/portage/package.* as files, not directories prior to your last emerge run.
If that is the case, then dispatch-conf was not handling that case when they converted to being directories.

I am using directories in /etc/portage/ and my unmask files are in /etc/portage/package.unmask/*

still not working, now in emerge -NuDav world --autounmask-write I am getting:

NOTE: The --autounmask-keep-masks option will prevent emerge
      from creating package.unmask or ** keyword changes.
