Does it still make sense to check for file-name here?  If we're just
deleting the auto save file, we should probably check for that only (but
see below, I'm not sure if this is actually correct).

I wonder if "backup" is meant to refer to the draft copy (as far as I
can tell (through the many layers of indirection), the draft
"dissociation" is also some kind of deletion).  If so, then I think this
change isn't a "fix" at all.
