Hi Andy,

as you can see the Debian packaged version of Amide recived a bug
report.  I checked this problem and realised that the cause is not
connected to the outdated autotools (even if it would definitely help to
update these and call autoreconf).

The problem is that your release tarball contains some backup files
(find . -name "*.bak") which are cleaned in your clean target in
principle but obviosely the tarball was created without cleaning up the
source tree before.  This is not only nasty in principly it just makes
us extra trouble in packaging.  Would you please be so kind to clean
up the source tree before releasing the next version of amide?

Kind regards and thanks for your cooperation
