    Well, this is not what I recall. The newest has no version, then according to
    the values of version-control, you get ~ or .~version~ :

OK, I guess I was wrong about this point.  What's probably happening is
that common files are being edited by people with different
version-control settings, so both types of backups exist for the same
file, and I was assuming that they were coming from the same user.
