The program used to unpack the .tar.gz archives automatically renames
ant .FOO files to _FOO while unpacking, so that's not a problem.
(This program, called djtar.exe, is part of the DJGPP package which is
used to build Emacs on MSDOS.)

I did notice that.  These files appeared very recently, and I didn't
yet have time to talk to Org mode maintainers about renaming them.
In the past a couple of other Org files were renamed for this reason,
at my request.
