I have now appended "~" to the auto-save filename.

But I do not feel happy with this solution.  I get the feeling that it
is something which will work fine for a long time, and some years
later, when nobody remembers what might be happening, it will bite us
again.  However, I can't really substantiate my claims with rational
arguments; it's just a gut feeling.

What do people think: should this issue be done _right_, or just in a
way that works for now?
