Just to provide a different data point, on my Debian (Wheezy) system, I find 
something over 800 files with "::" in the file name, most in 
/usr/share/man/pt_BR/man3/ and two in /var/lib/libxml-sax-



Aside: I've been trying to send a (new post / thread) to this mail list 
(addressed to rdiff-backup-users@nongnu.org) and it has been rejected multiple 
times -- I'm curious to see if this gets to the list.  If it does, I have to 
try to figure out why my new post doesn't get to the list.
