Strange.  I have left over .article, .article~, .letter, and .letter~
files.  Then again that is 3.6 on my ISP (I've not built a 4.0 beta in
quite a while).

I'm not talking about deleting the file that Lynx created.  I'm worried
about deleting the BACKUP copy an editor may have created.  I don't think
there should be any attempt to delete THOSE files.  Lynx did not create
those.  Lynx should not try to delete them.
