Thanks, Luis, for finding a bug in kfv.el.  Sorry that you had to be
such a victim in such a prominent section. :(

I will be releasing a new version soon.  In the meantime, just realize
a file of the form #name.ext# is just a backup file for name.ext.

If indeed those account for the 10%, then surely we are 100% done on
your section.  Again, sorry for the confusion.

As far as a fix goes, it is just a simple file counting bug.  OTOH,
perhaps I should also modify kfv.el so that it is impossible to make
those files in the first place.  They are a normal part of safe
editing practice with Emacs (like file.name~ files in vi I think),
but, of course, our work has nothing to do with editing source code
for the Linux kernel.
