Those are not backup files, but auto-save files (actually lists of
auto-save files). Does that help to solve the problem?
I think they should normally be deleted once you exit emacs. Do you
exit in some unusual way, like breaking your telnet/ssh session
without shutting down Emacs?
Optimist: We're only two weeks behind schedule.
Pessimist: The schedule is a whole two weeks ahead of us.
