The backup prefix is a compile time option (configure --with-hash-backup
will make it use '#' rather than ','; for anything more complicated you
probably need to modify the sources). The function m_backup() creates a
file with this prefix, and it's used in various bits of nmh that want
to create a backup file.

Have you upgraded your nmh recently and accidentally lost a local
configuration, perhaps?
