What's this supposed to be?  A bug report?  
Without mentioning such unimportant details as Operating System?
Not mentioning whether this also happens in the bug-fixed or experimental
code, or at least that you haven't checked?

You can do better.


Anyway, there's a problem in LYUtils.c, patch will follow in separate
mail.  That deals only with preventing the fatal error, not with changing
the treatment or usablility of files named '~' in any way.
